I've never seen a problem like this.  Are you sure you have the most
recent source from the gssapi branch?  It looks like it's on revision
2074 to me.

If you're still getting server crashes, can you get a core file?  

Finally, I have a few changes against revision 2074 (patch attached).
The only big change that I remember is a fix for one occassional server
segfault.  Note that you'll need one of the OpenAFS 1.4.7 release
candidates to build it because it requires libafsauthent.so (you need
access to the libraries from 1.4.7, but you don't have to be running the
afsd or kernel module from 1.4.7).
