We use heimdal's kinit etc. So they may work different. We also noticed tha=
t behaviour of randomized ticket caches on Ubuntu machines. So this may be =
special to them to "improve security".

In addition, we needed to patch openssh, as it has its own way of determini=
ng the cache file location.

In general, it is not safe to have ticket caches in a world-writable locati=
on, but KEYRING also had security troubles in the past. This is why we chos=
e to use sssd to create the ticket caches for the users under /run.
