It's entirely possible and quite likely, though I don't know for sure as
I only discovered the problem yesterday.

Would you point me to a URL to an archived post or a "heads-up"
announcement that I could take a look at for the kdc.conf changes? From
the man page I'm guessing that the tag I want is 'master_key_type' and
that it goes in the '[realms]' section, but I don't know what the old or new
types are.
