So I installed the 2014-05-09 x86_64 snapshot, and did nothing else
(i.e. left /etc/{passwd,group} alone, didn't create an
/etc/nsswitch.conf), since your attachment didn't contain anything
which said "Minimum necessary to make this all work is ...".

I then successfully launched mintty, but (since the most important
aspect of my 'identity' is my ability to authenticate using Kerberos),
the next thing I tried did not work as expected:

> kinit
Password: ....
kinit: krb5_get_init_creds: unable to reach any KDC in realm [the right realm for me]

Switching back to 1.7.29-2 fixed the problem.

What can I do to help locate the problem (unless you have a Kerberos
principal around you presumably can't reproduce this for yourself)?
