Thanks for checking that.

Well, this doesn't have to do with 1.4 vs 1.6. If the server cannot
decrypt the response from the kdc, there's nothing our code can do about
that. The same thing would happen with any other kerberized service.

The only ways you could have fixed that situation were making Solaris
understand aes256 (either by upgrading as you did, or presumably
installing SUNWcry), or changing the kdc configuration to not issue
aes256 tickets for the afs service (probably by removing the aes256 key
for it).
