Which Kerberos PAM module are you using?

vsftpd's source appears to do the right thing.  Try adding debug to the
PAM options line for vsftpd and see what syslog says about what's
happening.  You should see a pam_auth -> pam_setcred -> pam_open_session
sequence at the start and a pam_close_session at the end of the FTP
