Don't randomly pop up dialogs that interrupt what the user is doing.
Ideally, use renewable tickets when possible. If you're actually going to
have to interact with the user, provide a visual indication that the
tickets are expired (for example, something in the notification area), and
wait for the user to indicate they are ready to renew.
If you really feel you must interrupt the user by popping up a dialog when
they haven't asked for it, you can work around the problem you described by
waiting until the terminal is non-idle before doing so. How to accomplish
this is left as an exercise for the reader.
