I don't have any other response to this than what I already said:
'The draft (cbind-09) says that GSS_S_CONTINUE_NEEDED "Indicates
that a token from the peer application is required to complete the
context ...".  Isn't that the case here, "a token from the peer
application is required"?'

Anyway, I don't care to argue this.  I've stated my interpretation
and if you disagree, fine, it's you who are implementing it and
I'll adapt to that.

I would be more interested to know why Heimdal aborts as per
my previous message.
