[OpenAFS] aklog -setpag results in empty pag in RHEL5, openafs 1.4.11 - keyring gets destroyed

aklog -setpag does not work as expected under Openafs 1.4.11, under RHEL 5.

Tracing shows that a new pag is correctly created and the token stored, 
however as soon as the command terminates a guy called "[events/0]" comes and 
knocks out the ct.EndTimestamp, probably through afs_pag_destroy() / the 
keyring interface.

As the pag is created and a second aklog (without -setpag) then works 
correctly, the problem is by-passable. But this is not intuitive.

I plead guilty for not yet having done my homework as far as Linux keyrings 
are concerned - just wondering if this has already been fixed.
