thanks Andy.

I believe this is a bug as I have posted exactly the same problem to this
list already including some debug info, nobody replied though....
I have contacted Andrew Bartlett on this with some debug information and
am waiting for a reply. As its not just me I'll raise a bug in bugzilla,

	thanks Andy Smith.

PS I've replicated the problem on Linux and Solaris and Kerberos is 
working correctly.

I would start by checking for any kerberos misconfigurations.
Just a gut feeling though.  Does kinit run ok ?
