I thought the gotcha above was only true if UAC was turned on AND the user in 
question was an admin.

  "On Windows Vista, Windows 7, and Windows Server 2008 the operating system 
does not permit the importation of the Kerberos Ticket Granting Ticket if the 
active user account is a member of the Administrators or Domain Administrators 
groups and User Account Control (UAC) mode is active." 

Have you tried ticket importing as a non-admin user and/or with UAC off? It 
must still be configured in the NIM options, of course.
