You are right, the problem here is probably how the daemon forks and
exits one child and leaves the behind the nicely created environment
of k5start/kinit. In that case I normally run the daemon in some kind
of debug mode which is often possible to prevent it from forking and
then background the whole kstart/kinit instead.

Sorry if I caused some confusion here.
