My understanding is that the original poster had a problem because a
plugin was expecting to be able to safely use EXAMPLE.COM and that this
went wrong because RedHat's krb5.conf also defines EXAMPLE.COM.

If the plugin uses its own stub realm, from under the naming authority
of the author of the plugin, then this problem goes away.

Then I've misunderstood and I'm sorry for any confusion caused.  I'd
understood this to be a classic case of resource conflict caused by
assumptions of privateness, readily solved in a federated naming system.

If someone can hit me with a clue-by-four explaining the real problem,
it'd be appreciated.  Thanks.
