We observe what seems to be two different types of NIM/Heimdal crashes when=

Heimdal 1.5.1
OpenAFS for Windows 1.7.15
Windows 7 Enterprise SP1, 64 bit

The first crash happens intermittently when obtaining new krb5 credentials.
We have not  found a way yet to reproduce it reliably, but obtaining new
credentials for a couple of times will crash NIM sooner or later. We though=
it might be related to our DNS aliased AD KDC which has three machines,
but it seem we run into the same crash when we limit things to one KDC.

The second crash happens reliably when deselecting the 'Addressless'=20
option in the Advanced options Kerberos v5 panel.

We're not really experienced with debugging this on Windows, so any hints
what to look at or what other info is needed to understand what happens=20
would be greatly appreciated.
