It looks like you didn't apply the patch for heimdal that I sent to the
list (also on http://ns1.logidee.com/~joko/heimdal/src/heimdal_cache.patch)

Presently, the problem that my heimdal patch corrects (memory cache
corruption when freeing the context it was created in) is in discussion
on the list between Gabor Gombas and Johan Danielson. I've received a
private mail from Johan Danielson that seems to imply that this problem
might be corrected in a next version of heimdal.

Anyway, if heimdal developpers don't consider it a bug, I've already
thought of a possible other solution.

Set the "debug" option for the module in the pam conf files, and send me
(in private mail) the relevant entries from your auth.log (in case the
problem isn't the one I thought of).
