Assuming the aklog Kerberos plugin you're using is mine, that's the 
expected behavior.  If you don't want it, open up kfm_aklog.c and 
remove the unlog() call from KerberosLoginNotification_Logout().

Personally, I think it's the right behavior, at least most of the time 
(here at Stanford, it's the default, but we have an option in our GUI 
to turn it off).  When AFS tokens are obtained automatically as a side 
effect of clicking "Get Tickets...", a user who isn't aware of this 
certainly won't know that they need to do something else besides 
clicking "Destroy Tickets" to safely leave the computer.
