Yes, calling krb5_get_init_creds_opt_init() from
krb5_get_init_creds_opt_alloc() fixes the problem with the older
version (1.3.4) of MIT Kerberos that is shipped with Red Hat
Enterprise Linux 4.  Thank you!

By the way, the scope of my original bug report was too narrow.  This
problem occurred on both 32-bit and 64-bit RHEL 4 systems, and also on
RHEL 3 systems.

Unfortunately, the above fix does not make a difference with RHEL 3's
MIT Kerberos 1.2.7 (even with its many backported security fixes).
The workaround to this problem is to type the password correctly at
the first prompt, which I can live with.
