This is the intended behavior of Kerberos. So far as I know, it has
always worked this way. I have never seen logins succeed if you have an
empty .k5login file. I suspect something else was going on when you
thought this used to work (such as having the .k5login file not be
readable for some reason).
It would break many systems to have an empty .k5login file still permit
logins by principals that happen to match the local account name.
