It's nice for tracking purposes, but if you'd put a bug report in there
and hadn't cc'd me, I'd never have seen it.

Well, it's not quite trivial to set up:

But apparently I can fake that with /etc/hosts...

I note that installing "krb5-kdc krb5-admin-server" installed bind 9, an
SGML library, and a geoip database.  And failed to download 11 packages
until I ran "aptitude update" on the lenny test environment.

Setting up krb5-kdc (1.8.3+dfsg-4) ...
krb5kdc: cannot initialize realm KVM - see log file for details
Setting up krb5-admin-server (1.8.3+dfsg-4) ...
kadmind: No such file or directory while initializing, aborting

Yeah, this is probably going to take a while...
