I don't understand still why just taking the last entry in the keytab
makes sense. If we have a contrived situation like the one you describe,
wouldn't it be more sensible for us to add an option to specify the
principal in the keytab that we're looking for, rather than hoping that
the last one in the list happens to be correct?

Ok, I will do that. However, please modify the current patch so that we
just fail if we don't find the principal we expect.
