I'm always pretty early arriving at the gate, but if this were to happen, I wouldn't want to risk the ire of my fellow passengers if I were to breach etiquette;) If this is a no-go, with which group would I board and where in line? I agree with @dfwskier and @elijahbrantley although I would also maybe wait for a break if possible to minimize the appearance of cutting in - if there are four or five people left in the currently boarding column I'd jump in behind them. I frequently do this when I'm carrying baby gear and I have an A-20's number - I hang to the back and just go after A-30 so that I don't bump people with all of the bags. Agree that in a situation where you are late boarding, jump in from the side if you'll be short-circuiting the line, unless if you catch the line at the tail end just jump in the back of it and no one will even know you are out of order.

Unfortunately, Southwest has some issues with KTN's properly populating to an itinerary. While they'll tell you that "PreCheck is never guaranteed," you should be getting it 95%+ of the time. If you've called and had them add the KTN and Pre is still not showing up, you should 1) verify that the KTN is correct, and 2) verify that the name on your reservation exactly matches the name on your Global Entry (including middle name or initial). Good luck!
