Your other observations didn't matter because you tried to use kclog
which failed to get a valid token, so the Coda client and Coda server
were never even contacted.

It was basically a matter between kclog, kauth2 and the kerberos server.
So neither the venus logs nor the SrvLog server logs would show anything
about the whole login attempt.

On the server you can check /vice/auth2/AuthLog, that should contain
information about the login attempt,

Any login attempt would look like,

    16:08:51 AuthNewConn(0x34680142, 0, 66, 2, 7768)
    16:33:07 In PWGetKeys()
    16:33:07        vid = 7712
    16:33:07        vid = 7712

When it fails there is also a line like,

    00:34:36 Authentication failed for "username" from

You can check for all known users/groups by running,

    # pdbtool list

But this doesn't tell you whether these users actually have a password
that allows them to log in. That information is stored in /vice/db/,
and the corresponding password field is encoded with the key in
