[THIN] TS Licensing - Again!

Okay, I'll admit it - I'm thoroughly confused here.

My Citrix box has 15 Citrix connection licenses and runs on Windows 2000
Server.  It's the only server I use for remote connections, other than
the occasional RDP admin connection to other Windows 2000/2003 servers.

My TS Licensing Server is a Windows 2003 Server.  The Terminal Services
Licensing module only shows itself, not the Citrix box.  I see "Existing
Windows 2000 Server - TS CAL tokens" (16) and 1 temporary license for a
remote user.  That license is set to expire in 13 days.  This morning
that user received the "Your terminal services temporary client license
will expire in 13 days" warning message.  

I've not seen this before but found
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/822134 which tries to explain the cause
of the error message.  Trouble is, I don't understand the root of the
problem.  We've not had this issue previously when remote users connect
to the Citrix box.  Can I make changes to the licensing configuration to
resolve this?   Do I need to purchase additional licenses before
