That's just the way the Heimdal code is written. You didn't mention what 
  OS you're running on. Your system needs to support some form of 
credential passing over Unix domain sockets in order for this to work. 
The OpenLDAP code currently supports the original 4.3 BSD Unix domain 
socket semantics, current Linux versions, AIX, and Solaris/SVR4.
