kinit and foreign (Japanese) names

Hi All,

I am using Heimdal 0.5e and it's kinit tool to try and
get a TGT for a user in my Windows domain. Normally
this works just fine. But recently I started trying to
do this for users with Japanese user names. It seems
that if I give kinit the Japanese user name in UTF-8
format, then I get a "Preauthentication Failed" error.
This error is coming from the server, and usually
indicates an incorrect password. However, I'm certain
that my password is correct. Even weirder is that if I
purposely insert bad characters into my UTF-8
username, then I get a "Client unknown" error from the
server. So I know that the server *must* be
recognizing the user as valid.

Any ideas? Is kinit supposed to work with UTF-8 input
like this? Or am I just getting lucky that Windows is
accepting it? If not, how can kinit work with foreign
