Yes. Saw in on 2017-06-14, filed an encrypted bug report to heimdal-bugs
the next day with the attached patch. No reaction. Not to my status query
the other day either.

    Guard against null r->client_princ when calling _kdc_fast_mk_error().
    Some validation failures ("malformed server name", "No client in request")
    result in r->client_princ == NULL at the point of calling _kdc_fast_mk_error().
    Do not evaluate &r->client_princ->name or &r->client_princ->realm when this
    is the case.
    This bug is believed to have been the cause of a kdc crash with:
    2017-06-14T18:05:19 No client in request
    2017-06-14T18:05:19 AS-REQ malformed client name from IPv4:
