I think I've made a go of it!
I was able to uninstall freeipa-client, and it complained about some
leftover files, like so

Removing freeipa-client ...
dpkg: warning: while removing freeipa-client, directory
'/var/lib/ipa-client/sysrestore' not empty so not removed
I deleted and reinstalled, no problem.
I now followed the instructions over at this helpful site:
http://nadirlatif.me/installing-freeipa-client-debian/
And now I'm joined to the domain!
Of course this does not mean all my troubles are over, trying to login as
an IPA user drops a "permission denied" error:

Creating directory '/share/user'.
Unable to create and initialize directory '/user'.

Permission denied

What can I do to fix that? What am I missing?
