Now it's all coming back to me.

I don't normally use the Linux client.  Normally I use the Windows 
client. As such, I had some latent breakage on my network that I only 
now discovered.  Once upon a time I was switching over to use krb5 
rather than the kaserver.  I think I swiped an aklog from some site that 
was providing help/instruction during the big switch to krb5.  Time 
passed and I switched from MIT KDCs to Heimdal KDCs and in the process I 
quit running krb524d.

That you recalled that 1.2.8 didn't have aklog is impressive.  I want 
you on my OpenAFS bar trivia team.

Thanks a bunch!
