Hm, which end is that capture from? Can you capture at *both* ends? And
is that port 51144 on the client side, sending to the KDC on the VPN?

I suspect a fragmentation issue. Can you reproduce with large ping
packets, e.g. 'ping -s 2000'? Perhaps you can reproduce to a host on
the VPN where you *can* do a packet capture, if capturing on/near the
KDC is hard.
