Subject: kpropd fails to respond with an error indication if kdb5_util fails

If various errors happen while receiving the data from kprop, kpropd
can return a krb5_error message to kprop describing the problem.
However, if "kdb5_util load" fails, the kpropd process simply exits
without sending anything back, causing kpropd to report "software
caused connection abort" or some such. It should instead send back a
message indicating that kdb5_util failed.
