I've recently lost hours trying to get an awkward login configuration
working in Brooklyn, so I think I fit the criteria of "special login
situations" :-) I'll give this a try but it probably won't be until
Monday that I'll have the time to do it. There are a couple of warning
bells in your list of key changes, so if you can wait a couple of
days, please can we make sure that this is not merged until I've had a
chance to test it.
