And this extra byte is mandatory, so I'm pretty sure that the old code 
does not handle it. I have *no* idea how possibly the kerberos server 
could have worked without this extra byte. Maybe the RFC says something 
about it, like 'the first clients weren't able to handle the BISTRING 
DER encoded as expected, so we accept the BITSTRING without the extra 
byte'. I have to check that...
