I haven't looked at your code/sample yet, but I can try to explain some
parts: after a successful authentication, the authentication context
is stored in the session; so if you have a redirect (or a link) that does
not preserve the session than the user is not authenticated any more
and that could lead to the message from above.

In addition, to get information from the authentication context, you
have usually to tell the authentication framework which handler to
use. This is done by the auth-protect action. As long as this
action hasn't been activated in the current request, the context
is not available. You need a similar thing in flow as well.

Perhaps I have time to look at your example over the weekend.
