Please continue ccing krbdev since I will probably not be able to 
answer all of your questions personally.

Those functions will only display a UI when it is possible to display 
UI. If not, they will return you an error if you don't have a valid 
TGT available. Therefore it should be safe for you to continue 
calling those exact same functions with no changes to your code.
