... oh dear, I've not been clear, sorry Alexis.

     Whatever the actual pros and cons of doing what I was wondering 
about, I'm ABSOLUTELY committed to presenting users with ONLY the 
Kerberos Login Server dialog as provided by you guys.

     In my putative scenario, an application's request for a service 
ticket, when no ticket granting ticket was available, would cause an 
authentication failure, rather than the Kerberos Login dialog. 
However, I hear Marshall's concerns that this might be even more 
confusing, and likely to generate a heavier help desk load.

     Well, I've done nothing this morning except reply to email 
generated by my message to krbdev, so can I respectfully suggest we 
ease off the topic for a while?  I've probably generated a little 
more heat than light, but certainly sufficient light to illuminate 
the dark, dusty corners of my brain ... Gav

PS: Speaking of light, heat and other meteorological phenomena, those 
south and west of Ann Arbor might be amused at a foot of show and 
freezing rain here last night and the view of the trees from my home 
office window:
