It seems like the TAO orb replied with a 'location_forward' which cause
cdr_decode:dec_type to be invoked, but not with the correct arguments. To
avoid this exception update dec_reply/5 'location_forward' case to use:

{R, _, _} = dec_objref(Version, Rest, Len, ByteOrder),

instead of:

{R, _, _} = dec_type('tk_objref', Version, Rest, Len, ByteOrder),
now no exception should be raised.
