Try ignoring the warning from and launch your v5  mail 
reader.  Does the pop/ service ticket you acquired with 
'/usr/bin/kinit -S' let you get mail?

It is possible that the error is cosmetic, and KfM is incorrectly 
deciding the ticket isn't valid just because it doesn't have a TGT.

Make sure to destroy all your tickets before trying this, and let us 
know what happens.  The behavior is obviously a bug of some sort, but 
this would help us track down where the bug is.

Hope this helps,
