The Kerberos dialog is triggered by applications making Kerberos 
requests.  Most likely one of your applications is configured to use 
Kerberos.  In order to be able to help you track down which application 
is responsible, I need more information about your setup:

* What Mac OS X version are you running?

* Are you using Classic?

* What version of Kerberos is shown in the dialog (it should be in the 
lower left corner)?

* Does some action trigger the dialog (eg: checking mail) or does it 
appear spontaneously?

* If it appears spontaneously, what applications are you running when 
the dialog appears?
