kpasswd: Failed decrypting request petesea at

Using krb5-1.4.3 on a Redhat system and I get the following error from 

   Failed decrypting request

The admin server is accessed via VPN/NAT and from the sparse info I could 
find, I suspect that's the issue.  DNS does show that my VPN IP matches 
the hostname.


Is that the cause of the error?

Are there plans to fix this?

If there are no plans to fix it (or it can't be fixed)... is there any 
possibility the error message could be a bit more descriptive?

I'm trying to deploy kerberos to a large number of users, many will be 
accessing our systems via the VPN and I'm sure this will be an issue.
