Just to confuse you, windows client used to use kerberos 4, it didn't use
ka protocol. I have seen a patch to make the v4 protocol more agressive is
detecting those strange packets, but can't remember what it did.

Newer versions of the openafs client (of 1.3.x fame), uses native kerberos
5, more the that, is way more stable then the old transarc windows client.
