Matt,
The obvious question is whether your KDC is properly configured for
pkinit? Also, is the client configured to require preauthentication?
If so, the KDC should offer the pkinit preauth method to the client in
a preauth-required message. Unlike the Heimdal client, the MIT client
will not send padata automatically just because you specified
pkinit_identity and pkinit_anchors.

K.C.
