I'm new to OpenAFS.  I've been reading through the FAQ on the wiki,
and it mentions that cron jobs would require authentication.  This got
me thinking about processes, like a simulation job that was turned
loose on a AFS volume.  What happens if the kerberos ticket expires
before the job is done running?  Additionally, how well would OpenAFS
work for a computing cluster environment, like Sun Grid Engine?=20
Thanks for any insights and tips.
