I'm using Evolution; but note the telnet session.  I'll beat mail
clients into submission later.

I found the problem: I had not made the keytab file on the mail server
readable by the dovecot process.

(Yes, I'm well aware the wiki mentions this; and I probably read that
sentence at least a half dozen times without it really registering with
me.  Ahem.)

Thank you for your assistance.
