What version? 5.3.20, it is possible that there is a problem, it looks
like there are more than just realm related changed in CVS at the moment.

Kerberos is something that I don't use myself, so it is mostly dependent
on patches that people submit. The problem is that sometimes I get
carried away and clean up the code a bit too much. I believe that Ivan
Popov confirmed that the current CVS version was working for him (a
couple of months ago).
