Thanks. It sounds like I should have been running kinit right off the bat. I expected su-l to do the same thing but it wouldn't accept the initial password.

When you reset the user password in the GUI it is set to expire immediately, thus the user must change it the next time they login (klinit). See the documentation at https://docs.fedoraproject.org/en-US/Fedora/15/html/FreeIPA_Guide/changi ng-pwds.html for more detail.
