if KDC times out, we aren't moving over to the next KDC in a timely fashion

We have the following problem:

If the 1st KDC times out, we are not moving over to the next KDC in a timely fashion. UDP never seems to be an option because most KDCs return the ‘error Message is Response too big for UDP, retry with TCP’ message – which is forcing TCP. Changing the max_retries setting does not apply so I cannot reduce the retries – even still – 3.5 min is not an acceptable timeout.

This appears to be addressed in Java 1. (see However, is this addressed in any recent or upcoming Java 1.6 patches?

Are there other ways to work around this issue?
