I'm happy to try a patch -- but if I understand the above (which I interpret
as "adds support to kinit for reading libdefaults attributes from"),
if that was the problem, wouldn't "kinit -r 7d" work? Since that fails to
work, I'm not understanding why adding this support would solve the problem
(although it's a useful feature, and a good patch to have...).

Am I missing something?

That probably sounds a lot like biting the hand that feeds me -- and I'm
really trying not to -- I just want to fully understand.

Thanks for everyone's help.
