BTW, it's perfectly legal for the KDC to behave in this way, so the bug
is really in the MIT krb5 client code - it gives up too soon when
looking at the ETYPE-INFO. But there's no reason that the KDC couldn't
limit the ETYPE-INFO to a strict subset of the requested enctypes (this
is what MIT has settled on) or sort the ETYPE-INFO so that the requested
enctypes are listed first (my initial approach).
