The 1st is a refactoring that sends more info into the methods (Ex: `KdcComm::send(byte[])` -> `KdcComm::send(KrbKdcReq)`, and `Ticket` -> `Credentials` in multiple places) so that inside `KdcComm::send` there is enough info to decide how to deal with various errors. The 2nd is the actual fix to this issue, i.e. ignore the flag and retry another KDC.
