GSSAPI Sample Client (gss.exe)

What is it about this GSSAPI Sample Client (gss.exe) sample that "is not
compatible with the Platform SDK/Samples/Security/SSPI/GSS/ samples which
Microsoft has been shipping as of January 2004"?
I noticed that the Microsoft sample appears to improperly prepend 4-octet
buffer length values to the token buffers during the send/receive of context
establishment negotiation tokens. I thought that wasn't supposed to be done
until after the context was "complete" and the security layer was in effect.
Anyway, I'm working on a POP3 server app that runs on Windows Server 2003
(w/ Active Directory) and I'm having trouble finding a client anywhere that
does Kerberos v5 (GSSAPI) SASL Mechanism (per RFC 4752 or prior) to test it
out with. (Eudora doesn't work.) I want to give your sample client a shot
and see if I can make it work.
If you have revised versions of the MS samples that are compatible with your
client, I'd like to look at them.
