Well yes but we are still using wake because we get the non-windows krb5 
ticket as well as the afs tokens for the users at login.

The saved krb5 ticket then allows us to keep the staff happy via leash 
autorenew function (they hate logging in every 10 hours) and it means we 
can make use of this krb5 ticket for web services etc.

I think we maybe able to do this without wake using afscreds and leash32 
but we have not had the time to get it working yet. Any hints would be 
gratefully received.
