 From the article:

"New resolution for problems that occur when users belong to many groups"

It looks like XP and W2003 no longer have a max_token_size limit, and thus
the size of a ticket could now be above 12,000 bytes.

So for any sites that use Active Directory as the KDC and OpenAFS,
keep this folloeing option in mind for the afs/cell@realm principal

"An update is available that introduces the NO_AUTH_REQUIRED flag to
the UserAccountControl property in Windows Server 2003 and in Windows 2000"
