Hm, clearly unit test caught me. Let me look more into this...

> HADOOP-13558 intention was to avoid UGI from trying to renew the TGT when the UGI is
created from an existing Subject as in that case the keytab is not 'own' by UGI but by the
creator of the Subject.
> In HADOOP-13558 we introduced a new private UGI constructor {{UserGroupInformation(Subject
subject, final boolean externalKeyTab)}} and we use with TRUE only when doing a {{UGI.loginUserFromSubject()}}.
> The problem is, when we call {{UGI.getCurrentUser()}}, and UGI was created via a Subject
(via the {{UGI.loginUserFromSubject()}} method), we call {{new UserGroupInformation(subject)}}
which will delegate to {{UserGroupInformation(Subject subject, final boolean externalKeyTab)}}
 and that will use externalKeyTab == *FALSE*. 
> Then the UGI returned by {{UGI.getCurrentUser()}} will attempt to login using a non-existing
keytab if the TGT expired.
> This problem is experienced in {{KMSClientProvider}} when used by the HDFS filesystem
client accessing an an encryption zone.
