Login errors in V3 when using Kerberos authentication

So, in other words, Tom, just check the contents of the message string in login-error.vm and display my own text if that's what's in it. That correct?

I thought of this, but it sees to be against everything you all went for in V3. I'm okay with it, though.

I'm trying to figure out what needs to be added to the template or, better yet, the properties to have a nice error message for incorrect username/password. Right now, I get:

Modify views/login-error.vm to handle that particular exception in a different way ?

Scott probably will have a better suggestion, I am not sure how to map arbitrary exceptions to the classified message map.
