OK, I do see the problem now, and I was unable to get RIP working
between a Cisco IOS 12.2(25)S1 and JunOS 6.4R2. RFC2082 clearly defines
the key identifier, which IOS does implement with the "key <number>"
statement in the key chain definition. Even using a key ID 0 on IOS
side to trick around JunOS probably setting the key identifier field
to zero doesn't help to get communication between IOS and JunOS going.

Whatever JunOS implements there... it's not RFC2082 compliant as far
as I can see.

Sorry Ed, looks like a real JunOS problem.
