Try my heimdal port of RedHat's pam_krb5 which contains some major
bugfix and some additional feature like:
convert krb5 tgt to krb4 tgt (krb524), 
(The mainstream implement it wrong)
get afs tokens with krb5_afslog,
optinal native kth-krb4 ticket grabing. 

I wrote a new code which is usefull e.g at ssh with token
forwarding. It try to use and convert the forwarded krb5 tgt
to krb4 tgt and to afs tokens. (like pam_openafs_session)

The new refresh_creds option:
It is very userfull e.g with xlock. If you unlock
the display then it will refresh your tickets and tokens if

My heimdal works now with Heimdal and with MIT-krb5.
known to works on Linux and FreeBSD.

I yust released pam_krb5-heimdal-1_3-rc4.tar.gz

Have the kerberos users shadow entry in nss or not?

If not, then a required pam_unix in the account chain can break
to login a kerberos user in your system.

Please send back your pam chain and the answer for the above question.
