I'm still investigating this part.

Right, I've changed so that the warning is a verbose messages.  It is
not an error to not have a Kerberos ticket.

Creating the directory is required for reading the user configuration
file which will be stored there.  When the directory is created, a
sample configuration file is copied there too.

This is open to discussion, but as long as the directory isn't created
unless the user wants to use Kerberos, I don't see a problem in creating
the directory.
