I don’t know where the bug is yet, but it appears:

                kinit test

and

                kinit ‘te\st’

both work (tested on a Linux system)

 

Yet:

                kinit ‘\t\e\s\t’

does not work.  Only the version of the principal without a backslash was defined.

 

Backslash interpretation seems to have inconsistent processing within the Kerberos kinit client/library.

 

On the flip-side, I was able to create a principal with a backslash and only be able to authenticate using that principal with the correct positioning of the backslash.
