kerberos 5: wrong principal

I am having some trouble transitioning from a pam_krb5 setup to native
Kerberos 5.

What is the meaning of the following error:
2007-01-24 14:42:35 [3780] LOG:  connection received: host= port=4744
2007-01-24 14:42:35 [3780] LOG:  Kerberos recvauth returned error -1765328240
postgres: Wrong principal in request from krb5_recvauth
2007-01-24 14:42:35 [3780] FATAL:  Kerberos5 authentication failed for
user "nemesis"

- I have enabled krb_server_keyfile = '/etc/postgresql/krb5.keytab'
- I exported the keys for both host/host.domain and postgres/host.domain principals into that keytab
- The keytab is 640 root:postgres

This is postgres 7.4 but I tried 8.1 with no improvement.
The user account does exist and he can login if I use pam_krb5 instead
of native krb5.  With native krb5, the client can not log in with or
without a TGT.

I tried stracing the postmaster process and it opens the krb5.conf file,
but does not appear to ever connect to the KDC before returning the
error to the client:
$ psql -h db -l
psql: Kerberos 5 authentication failed

Any ideas?
