In early 2006, we began integrating a "kadmin error handling fix" from
Rahul Srinivas at Novell, which introduced the following conditional
in kadmin.c:

+    if (strcmp (whoami, "kadmin.local") == 0)
+       set_com_err_hook(new_default_com_err_proc);

The code was heavily reworked, but the conditional on being run as
kadmin.local remained.  The upshot is that we don't display extended
error messages if you run kadmin as kadmin.  Does anyone know why we
wouldn't want to do so?
