The match-in-vrf keyword is missing from the ip nat inside source command, and the ip nat inside source command is not accepted at all in interface-configuration mode. This symptom is observed on a Cisco 7200 series that runs Cisco IOS interim Release 12.4(11.6a) or interim Release 12.4(12.03)T but may also affect other routers.

the match in vrf allow you to have the same translation in two distinct vrf

so that you can have something like

ip nat inside source a.a.a.a b.b.b.b vrf a match-in-vrf

ip nat inside source a.a.a.a b.b.b.b vrf b match-in-vrf

but this feature is, as far as I know, only working for a vrf-lite config.
