One more question WRT gssapi...

Must the account that a service is logged in as do a "kinit" as the  
principal it intends to use prior to using the GSSAPI function  
gss_acquire_cred ?  Or is it sufficient to have the key for the  
credential in question in the /etc/krb5.keytab file?

In other words, must I do:

kinit -t /etc/krb5.keytab service/host at

? or will gssapi handle it for me?
