i had this error too some weeks ago...

i _think_ this is a locked out domain user trying to log in and the KDC refuses initial credentials.

another possibility is that someone tries principal user at FOO where the Windows2000 domain
ist FOO.COMPANY.COM and the client kinit program cannot set bit 15 (IIRC) to canonicalize the
realm name.
