Aha, oho. I think this is some non-standard DES3 using SHA1, but
without the key-derivation stuff that's required for real
des3-cbc-sha1. It might correspond to the "old-des3-cbc-sha1" enctype
(that we have as 7).

If you *really* want this to work, you could probably swap these two
enctypes (in lib/asn1/k5.asn1), and recompile your kdc. Don't know if
it's worth the trouble.

Well, the thing is that you may have any number of master keys active
at any time. It should complain if it can't decrypt a key though.
