However, without either, it doesn't detach.

Andreas, I believe you may be using my init script ... in which case adding:


to /etc/sysconfig/heimdal should address the one mistake I have made in the

If you can tell me how you got kpasswdd or kadmind to not start up, I will 
look at having the init script report this better.
