Make a local user, login with this new guy and kinit to AD, get any log 
you can if something goes wrong. Work for some time to make sure you're 
not kicked out of the system (I understand this is what happens) 
collecting logs.

Make clear what you mean by ``hangs for 30 secs''. Do you mean that it 
actually *freezes*? Can you type in the console?
