Ah, I'll bet that's it -- we also just switched to using K5 aklog
instead of K4 aklog.

Hmmm, that's pretty ugly.  For the KDC, I made this table be in
krb5.conf (I posted a diff for this back about 1.0.5 or so), but
I'm not sure I really want to go that way for AFS.  I think maybe
just an instance-free name is the way for me to go, thanks,
