This instructs NIM to monitor that FILE based credential cache for
credentials that are obtained outside of NIM.  For example, by a kinit
or Java.

That could be a bug if it is anything other than a warning.  If you are
prevented from adding the path to the list of credential caches, it is
a bug.

You need to update the Identity object to use a FILE: ccache.  Did you
do that?  If not when you obtain a new credential it goes into the API:
ccache which is the default.
