Correct, it's configured for automatic logon.  Should have said "no
prompt for logon user/password."

Waited 12+ minutes from first appearance of "Welcome" -- then hit
CTRL-ALT-DEL -- desktop appears shortly after CTRL-ALT-DEL.

Trying again, will hit CTRL-ALT-DEL after the approx 2.5 minutes I
expect (from successful boot attempts earlier, with AFS enabled for auto
start) and see what the lower time frame is for this behavior.
