Modern MIT krb524d seem to require des-cbc-crc, for unknown reasons. I
think older version were happy with any des key.

Not really. It only uses the des key, and they are (normally) the same
for all three enctypes (des-cbc-{crc,md4,md5}). Kerberos 4 itself
would use something like des-pcbc-none (which is not part of any
Kerberos 5 standard).
