I just upgraded 2 of our development machines from KRB5 1.0.1 to
1.0.5. Now when I do "rlogin -f" to log onto a remote host and
forward my Kerberos tickets, the credentials cache file does not
get changed to be owned by me. It is still owned by "root", so
I can't read it, and thus cannot use it for anything.

When I log into the remote host as "lio", this is what I see in

-rw------- 1 root sys 509 Jul 7 10:53 /tmp/krb5cc_p36138

So the credentials cache is being created, but its ownership is
not being set correctly.

This all worked fine in 1.0.1.

See Description above.

None known other than avoiding forwarded credentials.

Incorrect ownerships of forwarded ticket files are usually the result of
login/rlogind mismatches. Closing.
