I believe so.  Unfortunately, I am vague on this stuff.  The Mac OS X  
server advertises "single login"using Kerberos.  On the client, I  
select authenticate via Kerberos GSSAI, and the problem happens.   
(The login authentication is also done via Kerberos from the same  
server).  If I change my client to authenticate via "password", then  
I do not have the problem.

The client can be running on the same machine as the server or a  
seperate machine and I have the same symptoms.
