you have all been more than just helpful! Thank you all for your  
instant and well pointed directions. I will try what Rick said about  
krb5-config on Monday morning, when I will get to work. If that won't  
work, I'll try John's view on the issue.

In any case I'll send feedback to the list.

Thank you all, once more, for your help and thoughts.
