Data initialization problem in krb-1.6.3

I have been chasing a problem reported by valgrind when using GSSAPI to
connect to an LDAP server. I have managed to pin this down to
uninitialized data inside the Kerberos code.
I attach a patch which fixes this in what is probably a too conservative
fashion as I have chased this through a number of different scenarios.
The final fix was in the memory allocated for the k5seal.c and
In the process I have also added memory clearing functions to other data
that was not being initialized.
I have also restructured the k5arcfour_init routine. Some of this was
taken from the trunk head in the subversion repository, some is my
removing intermediate storage items to simplify the code flow.
I would like to see the intent of this patch incorporated into the main
line development, I have no burning desire to have the patch as written
