Ok, so if I understand things correctly, in the log sequence below CUPS is calling "smbspool_krb5_wrapper" (since /usr/lib/cups/backend/smb is a symbolic link to /usr/bin/smbspool_krb5_wrapper) and then CUPS is logging those lines starting with "[Job 89] SMBSPOOL_KRB5", but how can CUPS know that it should set e.g. KRB5CCNAME to \'FILE:/tmp/krb5cc_1000\' - isn't that something coming from smbspool_krb5_wrapper (part of the smbclient package)?
