although it doesn't do anything for them. I have been curious about this
prompt, but haven't had a chance to look into it yet.

I happen to have MIT Kerberos for Windows installed--that may or may not
be relevant. I've not (as far as I remember) configured Chrome to try to
use SPNEGO to talk to my IPA servers so this may not be relevant.
