We removed all the MIT packages and rebuilt against the equivalent
Heimdal. Works OK now. smbd starts and stops correctly on enable and

The other missing piece was the ubuntu upstart, buried deep in the wiki

What a pity we didn't investigate this last week:(

Also, it really isn't clear the MIT and Heimdal thing. Is this
documented anywhere? We've only come across it when on Ubuntu. Maybe
it's a Debian thing. All we can find is some history US defence
authority stuff about munition. Maybe we should ask on the MIT list?

Anyway, thanks again and we hope that this thread will help others avoid
the Krb5 pains.
