Yes, looks that way.  Which is strange because while in the previous
reconnection attempt the client did not request a virtual IP it did at
least respond to the XAuth request.  Here it apparently does neither
before sending a Quick Mode request.  Maybe it's a reauthentication.
This was a problem with (older) iOS versions, which lead to the
development of the xauth-noauth plugin [1].  Try checking the client log.
