It is Kerberos who produces the account name from the ticket the auth
daemon acquires with the help of the data sent by the client. If Kerberos
would happen to produce a string "484", then the suthentication daemon
takes it literally and transforms to the numerical id.

To make it easier to analyze I wouls ask you to make the corresponding
clog using Coda password. You do not have to change anything in the setup,
just create a password for an account and tell clog to use the codapassword

I would like to see both the command log on the client and the authd log
on the server.

Let us make the situation as simple as possible. Would you avoid
using any .codafs/clog/.... and supply all of the options on the command line?
