afslog behaviour in a cross realm configuration


I'm a bit wondering about the behaviour of afslog in a cross realm 
authentication situation. I have two ADS, say A.FZK.DE and CG.FZK.DE.
There is a one way trust between them, so that users from A.FZK.DE can log 
into CG.FZK.DE. In the latter I have a afs ID of 7597 which matches the unix 
If I'm  authenticated in A.FZK.DE and run  aklog -d  (as provided by openafs 
1.3.86)  I get:
[schwicke]$ aklog -d
Authenticating to cell cg.fzk.de (server iwrafs0.fzk.de).
We've deduced that we need to authenticate to realm CG.FZK.DE.
Getting tickets: afs/cg.fzk.de@CG.FZK.DE

Using Kerberos V5 ticket natively
About to resolve name schwicke@A.FZK.DE to id in cell cg.fzk.de.

Set username to AFS ID 393009
Setting tokens. AFS ID 393009 /  @ KA.FZK.DE

[schwicke@iwrcgvor1:/afs/cg.fzk.de/home/schwicke]$ tokens

Tokens held by the Cache Manager:

User's (AFS ID 393009) tokens for afs@cg.fzk.de [Expires Aug 18 04:11]
   --End of list--

This AFS ID has been created previously by aklog. 
If I run heimdals afslog instead 
[schwicke@iwrcgvor1:/afs/cg.fzk.de/home/schwicke]$ afslog -v
krb5 tried afs/cg.fzk.de@KA.FZK.DE -> 0

again it provides me with an afs token, but for the wrong AFS ID:
[schwicke@iwrcgvor1:/afs/cg.fzk.de/home/schwicke]$ tokens

Tokens held by the Cache Manager:

User's (AFS ID 7597) tokens for afs@cg.fzk.de [Expires Aug 18 04:11]
   --End of list--

hence, this token is "discarded" since not matching the correct key (unknown 
key version number). The same problem occurs with my pam_krb5afs module which 
uses the heimdal libs.  As a result, people already authenticated in A.FZK.DE 
are let into the machine when connecting with ssh but get an afs token which 
does not work.

Is this behaviour known ? Is this just a  missconfiguration problem or a 
problem of libkafs ?

Thank's in advance!
