It is happening because of one of two things. Either the
krb5-auth-dialog is broken and isn't recognizing that krb5_cc for the
user doesn't exist, and that it shouldn't complain, OR it isn't started
with -a (that is LOWERCASE -a) which will cause it to not start if you
have no valid credentials.

It appears that whoever set it up in Fedora15/16 (I just upgraded from
14) has it as -A and not -a. I use kerberos so, it really doesn't affect
me. You may want to file a bug.
