A PK right away would make no sense whatsoever. Myself I would warn and then if it continues then really it's a game to game decision. If the keeper with the ball is winning, he's most likely trying to waste time which you can usually tell. If the keeper is with the ball and losing and taking too much time, it doesn't really seem to be a problem because he isn't time wasting but still would urge the keepers to get the ball in play.
