Cannot delete expired principal from kerberos system, how delete principals in kerber

Hello people,

I have some very strange issues related to kerberos server ( heimdal on debian etch ).

When I do kadmin -l and then list * I got the following.
kadmin -l
kadmin> list *

and this is clear to me.

When I do kadmin ( without l ) and then list * I got the following output

kadmin> list *
test/admin@TEST.COM's Password:

and then I enter password for "test" and got the following

kadmin: kadm5_get_principals: Client (test/admin@TEST.COM) unknown
When I try kadmin>delete test I get

kadmin> delete test
test/admin@TEST.COM's Password:
kadmin: del test: Client (test/admin@TEST.COM) unknown
I cannot understand why I can not delete test?

I know that is switch l with kadmin means locally database administration on kerberos database and I googled, reading still man pages but I cannot figure out how delete test from my system.

Any hint will be very helpful.
