	That makes sense, thanks for the pointer!

If I create a registry entry
and give it the same 1500 value as the
things seem to work as expected (25 hour tokens obtained
with integrated login).  Sweet!  :-)

	Or were you referring to another type of
system-wide default?

	Using the above HKLM setting should suffice for
any of the machines that we administer directly.
I'm not quite sure what to do with all of the student owned machines,
though, but we are significantly farther ahead than we were.
The majority of them most likely won't be using integrated login,
so the problem set is now significantly reduced.

	Thanks for your help!  :-)
