I have set up a Visual WebGui ASP.NET application in an IIS 7 site on Server 2008 R2. The site is SSL secured and requires Windows authentication. After the authentication prompt, the user can access the first screen and maybe one more before being prompted again for a logon. At this point, the worker process w3wp.exe crashes (logged in the Application event log). Three occurrences of the 4649 error are found in the security event log at the same time.

The crash happens even after moving the app to a non-authenticated site, in which case the 4649 error is not generated, so the Kerberos error is not causing the app to crash. Rather, a symptom of the app crashing when on an authenticated site is the 4649 error. This error appears to correspond to a KRB_AP_ERR_REPEAT Kerberos error.
