I can confirm that this patch works as expected - following test done:

1) TortoiseSVN installed, MIT Kerberos installed but not in path.

Commits to repository (running mod_auth_sspi) shows user as windows 'login' ticket.

2) MIT Kerberos added to path (c:\Program Files\MIT\Kerberos\bin)

Commits to repository (running mod_auth_krb with "KrbMethodK5Passwd off") shows user as
that in MIT's default ticket.

MIT Kfw also seems to pick up the 'login ticket' and will use that unless a different
ticket is set as default, so if MIT Kfw is installed, end-users will still be able to use
their login-granted ticket against SSPI-enabled repositories.

I'd like to request that this be added to the HEAD, since it will enable Kfw functionality
and shows no degradation of kerberos services for non-Kfw or 'accidental' Kfw users.
