No worries. I do have that user (and everything else, specifically single
sign-on ssh) works with it. I do agree that if I had not that user, the
behaviour I see would be neatly explained.

When it comes to gssd, I've got its behaviour pretty well nailed down. It
does what it's supposed to do.

However, when I tried rebuilding libgssapi.so.10, I ended up with gssd
hanging when it used the new library. I have no idea why.

Would it be wise to upgrade from 9.1-RELEASE to something newer? I've seen
references to 10-CURRENT. I'd like to be debugging the latest version of
everything, but this machine also needs to serve as a fileserver for my
home office, so some degree of stability is needed.
