The AuthLog is often not very enlightening.

Are there any errors when you use clog?

Something like can't resolve authentication servers for realm foo, or

No, just that someone connected and tried to authenticate for a user
with user-id 1000.

Actually it does seem to indicate that the authentication was successful
and a token was passed back to clog, otherwise the message would have
been, '11:47:57 Authentication failed for "jaharkes" from ...'

So the problem must then be when passing the token from clog to venus.
But I would still expect some kind of error message.
