We've had multiple reports that the fix for 'vuln-indirect-dll-hijack' broke MIT Kerberos support.

Apparently gssapi32.dll needs to load other DLLs from a location like C:\Program Files\mit\kerberos\bin, such as krb5_32.dll.

Apparently you get a message something like "The program can not be started because krb5_32.dll is missing on the computer. Reinstall the program to resolve the problem." (wording may not be exact)
