Er, that's how it's supposed to work and how it has always worked.  If  
you really do want to put your KDC at risk in the name of convenience,  
use "kinit -S kadmin/admin foo/admin" to get a ticket that will enable  
password-less kadmin (and likewise enable it for anyone who can get at  
your ticket file --- which is why kadmin prompts).
