An strace seeing which syscall is actually failing would help, but I
don't know how easy that would be, if this is coming from inside pam
from an ssh login. That log message would come up if the actual setpag
call failed with ENOENT, right? Maybe there's some code path that
returns ENOENT, though I can't think what it would be...

Maybe we could just get you a modified libpam_afs_session.so that would
log somewhere more information about the failure. Would that sound
