I think that makes sense. Would you also want to suppress the probe
request in that case? It serves the same purpose, but would cause you to
do an extra auth for no reason (which potentially means user input,
which is annoying).

Also, if I recall your original complaint correctly, the "Expect"
handling was only half of the problem. Wasn't there also an issue where
git prompts for a password, even though GSS-Negotiate doesn't use it? Do
you have a plan for that?
