It's private namespace.  The uni won't delegate ieee.uow to us, so we use a
private DNS server to reference all the machines in the lab.  The DNS works
fine for everything else, though, so I wouldn't put that first on the list
of possible problems...

I don't really see how the problem is DNS-related, though.  /etc/krb5.conf
should be set up OK, but is shown below anyway.

        clockskew = 300

        IEEE.UOW.EDU.AU = {
                kdc = kerberos.ieee.uow.edu.au

Anything else of importance?  Well, kerberos works pretty fine except for
this one application.

If you've got any thoughts, let me know and I can at least try them out.

One thing that did worry me was that ktutil list didn't put a realm on the
end of any of the listed tickets in the keytab.  Is that normal behaviour?
