Thanks to use our (oooo, well Nalins's) pam_krb5 implementation.

Ok. I will add a "refresh_credentials" like pam command line option.
With this you can refresh the krb5/krb4 and afs tokens too.

Thanks, this is a bug.

I looked into the openafs's pam module and i think we need to use
the curpag() function from it. I need to read the IMB Public Licence
because pam_krb5 was released under GPL.

No. I will reenginer it tomorrow.

Thanks to the correct feature request and bug report.
