I could reproduce the same error. I guess it has do with the spelling of 
the realm-name (upper/lower case letters): I accidentally did a kinit with 
one letter of the realm-name *not* in uppercase and got exactly the same 
behaviour (also against a Win2003 DC). Then I did the same thing but with 
wrong cases in the principal-name: Here the password was accepted.

Although the DNS-domain-name of a Windows-domain might be mixed case or 
lower case, the realm-name is still treated in upper case.
