[OpenAFS] Problems running batch jobs

Alright, so I have gotten to the point where I am ready to start  
playing with batch processing. I am taking the suggestion that Derek  
Atkins made. I have two principles for each user, username and  
username/batch. The batch account has a keytab file that can be used  
to generate tickets. I can log in and everything appears to be  
working until I try to use the batch account with OpenAFS. As my  
normal user I can use my home directory normally, but as the batch  
user I can not cd into the directory even though I should have  

I am sure I am just mis understanding something with this setup but  
for the life of me I can not figure out what. Any help would be  
greatly appreciated!

Here is the output from all the programs that I can run =)
