Thanks for the suggestion. I will make sure that my GSS-API context is being used by one thread at a time.
And can you give me similar information about 1.2 and 1.3 releases too. Why I am asking this question is, because some of the Red Hat Linux platforms comes with 1.2 versions of Kerberos V5 releases. I am thinking of possibilities for using libraries which comes with the OS instead of building my own libraries.

1.4 is certainly intended to be relatively thread safe, but of course
bug fixes have been introduced into 1.5 and 1.6.
For GSS-API, you need to make sure any given context is only being
used in at most one thread at any given time.
