Tortoise authentications with HTTPS + Kerberos

The main problem we have is that for a period of time (months) all will be fine on the client side, then suddenly the tortoise client fails to authenticate via Krb5, and as such any subversion functionality fails. This happens sporadically across our clients, with some remaining fine, and others never to function again via HTTPS/KRB5.
On the client side, we get the following error messages:
Error: PROPFIND of '/svn/path/is/here/': authorization failed: Could
On the server side, we are running the following
An example configuration snippet is below from Apache for your reference:
LoadModule dav_svn_module modules/mod_dav_svn.so
AuthLDAPBindDN 'FULL DN FOR BINDING'
#### Permitted Users/Groups
In regards to further diagnosis, I have found the following:
TortoiseSVN 1.6.16, Build 21511 - 32 Bit , 2011/06/01 19:00:35
TortoiseSVN 1.7.5, Build 22551 - 32 Bit , 2012/02/13 17:36:15
The client OS is both Windows XP and Windows 7.
As a work around, I am able to move the clients to a SSH+SVN configuration, which although works isn't really how I want it to function.
I've had a look through the archived lists and forums and have found other users having the same issue, however root cause never seems to be found.
Has anyone else encountered this issue, or have any advice on how i can progress with diagnosing this issue ?
All the best,
