Our site has been using the migration kit since the beginning of 1998.
We ran into a number of other problems along the way because we decided
to have our realm name different that our cell name (don't ask why, we're
still not sure).  We also have it working with Win boxes using aklog.
If you are interested you can take a look at a brief writeup I once did on
our migration (why we did it and problems we ran into):
