[OpenAFS] !@#$ integrated logon

Hi Jeffrey,

I'm currently running _with_ loopback on WinXP.  This happens both with the
loopback and without it, on WinXP and Win2k.  I have never seen the afs
service start properly during afslogon on WinXP or Win2k under any
configuration (and I've tried quite a few).

I believe it may work if my Windows name was the same as my AFS account
name, but it's not.  I don't think integrated login should be nuked
completely, but there should be some way to completely disable it.  It's
such a relief to be spared a 2 minute hang after login followed by
"Integrated Login Failure".  Like I said, that's my clients major reason for
removing the AFS software.
