Hi All

Current sun.security.krb5.Credentials's acquireTGTFromCache method looks
like --

Cred acquireTGTFromCache(princ, fcache) {
  if (fcache not specified) {
    if (Windows) {
      cred = function {
        get default TGT from default file cache;
        if (found && etypeSupported) return it;
        else return one from LSA;
      if (princ specified && princ is not princ in cred)
        return null;
        return cred;
  read cred for princ in fcache
  if (found && etypeSupported) return it;
  else return null;

It seems there's a chance on Windows that the default TGT in default
file cache (fcache == null) is not for princ, but maybe there's one for
princ in LSA. It won't get read.

Right? Shall we just move the whole fcache to the beginning and only use
LSA as a fallback?
