The kerberos stuff is for the PAM auth although I though this was
necessary for the Samba stuff too.

Also, as far as the workgroup-name goes it's true it's the shorter
name but in my case the short name is PRESIDIO.

Could you send me a copy of your config? I'm obviously a bit off
hacking kerberos.
