[OpenAFS] Could not obtain token after upgrade to 1.7.8

After I upgraded from OpenAFS 1.7.4 to 1.7.8, I can no longer obtain a token
with the AFS Authentication client or klog.exe. It complains that the
"authentication server is unavailable" (after a long delay). It works with
1.7.4. I went back and forth between the releases to check this wasn't a
one-off installation problem: klog always works fine with 1.7.4 and always
fails with 1.7.8.

I am using Windows 7, 64-bit. The AFS server is still using the old K4
authentication. I'm accessing it from home behind NAT and through a
firewall, but that wasn't a problem with OpenAFS 1.7.4.

What could have changed?
