Yes, I am using libpam-openafs-session, and your suggestion solves my 
problem, thanks :)

But now, the problem arises on one other machine. Unlike brunhild, this 
machine is no testing-box. So I cannot just remove 
libpam-openafs-session, because then, the user cannot login normally 
I am a bit confused, because the problem only arises on this one other 
machine, which is a Debian testing/unstable mix (with actual openafs 
1.4.2 packages from unstable). On all other machines (Debian sarge and 
one Kubuntu edgy, all with hand-compiled openafs 1.4.1 debian-packages, 
taken from Kubuntu Edgy) libpam-openafs-session works well, though the 
version of the source for the libpam-openafs-session is 1.0 on all systems!
The user reports, that he always losts his afs-tokens, if he does a "su" 
to become root. Also, the tokens got lost after some time anyway...

By the way: I'm running the fileserver with version 1.4.1, but some 
Linux-Clients with version 1.4.2 and all Windows-Clients with versuib 
1.5.11. Is this leagal, or may it corrupt the fileserver?
