some progress anyway, I get tokens but no /afs

Ah, this is a "fancy" default coming into play, no doubt.  /run/user may
be isolated for various users with filesystem namespaces to prevent
cross-user attacks (though I guess that may not be coming into play here).
I also recall issues where the /run/user/<uid>/krb5cc/ directory was
not created automatically, so check that it exists.

Okay, now the kerberos part is succeeding, so any issue here is on the AFS =

This seems to suggest that aklog -noprdb might succeed.

There are two ticket caches in play here, which can be confusing to both hu=
(i.e., me) and software.  Is KRB5CCNAME modified between any of the pasted =
you have given here?  Did you consciously try to set either /run/user/0/krb=
or FILE:/tmp/krb5cc_0?

Is aklog linked against a heimdal or MIT libkrb5?
Please provide any /etc/krb5.conf declarations relating to names of credent=

I don't think it's particularly helpful to be randomly trying different ver=
of the software; I would rather get good solid debugging output from a spec=
setup and understand what is failing, so that software changes can be targe=
instead of "shotgun style".
