Yes, that sounds like krb5-auth-dialog, which is an independent package from NM.

We would definitely like the UI for it to be better.  If you're
interested in improving the Kerberos experience for the desktop, there
is an active upstream who would likely respond to a bug report.  I
could imagine e.g. having a libnotify popup pointing to the new tray
icon, rather than an out-of-the-blue dialog.  That wouldn't be
significant amounts of work.
