[OpenAFS] 1.3.87 for Windows Authentication screen doesn't pop up

1. The auth screen just doesn't pop up although it tries.
2. The AFS Client Configuration screen is accessable only thru Leash AFS
3. Leash does get AFS tokens for a cell that uses krb5
4. Leash does not get AFS tokens for a cell that uses kaserver (I assume
that's because I don't understand how to set the system up - but I don't
care - its going away)
5. Under Linux aklog and klog produce tokens for the krb5 cell and kaserver

I'm not sure how Leash is supposed to interact with AFS client. On previous
releases to 1.3.87 one could access the AFS tokens window from either Leash
or directly (it would stop doing this occasionally and resume after a
reboot). Now its thru Leash only.

I would like a catalog of all the registry values used by AFS as they are
not all deleted with uninstall. Perhaps I'll look at the sources. The
behaviour of the client changes if one manually deletes all the afs and
transarc settings prior to reinstall.

Someone else reported this problem this week as well.
His problem appears to be the use of Kerberos 5 based tokens
for a Transarc AFS cell.   They won't work.  You can't access
the mapped path and then afscreds.exe appears to get confused somehow.

I'm on vacation and don't have time to research this problem.
What I can ask you to do is install the debugging symbols and Microsoft
Debugging Tools for Windows and then obtain a stack trace showing what
function afscreds.exe is hanging in.

That will go a long way to identifying the real cause of the problem.
