I think that you are close to the problem with this KerberosFlags not 
being handled correctly,felix.

The way we manipulate them is not consistent with the new storage, as 
the check is lookig for bits expecting them to be stored from right to 
left in the integer, when they are now stored from left to right.

I have to go and see my parents this afternoon, so I won't probably be 
able to fix it, or maybe while commuting (I have roughly 45 minutes of 
train), so if you come with a solution before me, that'll be fine. But 
if you do something else this afternoon (this is sunday, for X sake !), 
maybe I'll come with a fix on my own.

In any case, I think we can get this bummer fixed tonite !

Thanks for having investigated this problem !
