named: invalid rndc key

I just tried reloading my nameserver after adding a new domain (zonefile).

But then this happened:

$ rndc reload
rndc: connection to remote host closed
This may indicate that the remote server is using an older version of
the command protocol, this host is not authorized to connect,
or the key is invalid.

I've tried using rndc-confgen to create a new rndc.key, as well as
rndc.conf and references in named.conf, but the problem is still there.

I've been using my nameserver setup for months and it's all been
working smooth. I've made no incremental changes that would result
in this thing either.
