I just tried out the new version, it seems indeed to have the required
functionality to set up a system with Heimdal-krb5, AFS and PAM.

I tried:
xlock to test the AFS token renewal (and optionally also to obtain
refreshed K4 and K5 Tickets). Works as advertised.

sshd to test the correct handling of pagsh and to obtain K4 and K5
Tickets). Works as well.

Thanks a lot, that has (for the moment) solved all the problems I had with
the module.
