You have a missmatch between the address in krb-reqeust and the address
in the IP-header. This happens as the machine uses lo0 whenever it
figures out that it is talking to itself and thus you get the machines
IP in the kerberos request and localhost in the IP-header.


        no-addresses = true

will work around this but it might be undesirable for other reasons.
