I'm playing with a PAM module (originally written by Frank Cusack) which
uses memory cache to transfer credentials between PAM authentication
stages. If the Kerberos PAM module has written the credentials to disk in
the pam_authenticate stage, there were no way to delete them if some other
PAM module decides that the user may not log in.

The credentials must be transfered to a disk cache only if the application
calls pam_setcred.
