OK, I haven't tried that version yet.
You can use the KRB5CCNAME environment variable to create a separate=20
credentialcache, so that other shells are not affected.

Try :

export KRB5CCNAME=3D"/tmp/blah"
kinit -t=3D<operatorkeytab> <principal>

on exit, you should remove the credentialcache /tmp/blah.
