When you log out of the session from which you started screen, PAM will
destroy your AFS tokens. If you don't want PAM to destroy AFS tokens on
session close, you need to give the retain_after_close option to
pam-afs-session and pam-krb5.
Alternately, start screen with krenew -t -- screen, which will create
isolated tickets and tokens for the screen process that are disconnected
from your login session.
