Hi Owen,

I did make some changes to how errors are handled in 1.3.0. I tried and failed to get a nice looking 401 error page if someone failed to enter credentials so this may account for the change in behaviour. I'll take another look but I may end up removing the error-page config if I can't find a proper solution.

Have stopped scratching, this appears to be a known problem with some
versions of tomcat
: when custom
error pages are used.

For now a workaround was commenting the 401 error page from web.core.xml

<!-- <error-page>-->
<!-- <error-code>401</error-code>-->
<!-- <location>/</location>-->
<!-- </error-page>-->

I presume that if this isn't a problem for other people that it is fixed
in a later version of tomcat.

Thanks anyway,
