>      Security Level: public(Regular issues) 
>          Components: security

> Scenario is as below:
> Let's say server is starting and org.apache.geronimo.configs/rmi-naming/2.0.1/car has
started, but org.apache.geronimo.configs/j2ee-security/2.0.1/car hasn't yet started. If an
external entity (like Geronimo Eclipse Plug-in) now tries to connect to the kernel remotely
through JMX, although rmi connection succeeds, authenticate will fail (because security realm
has not yet been started).
> In this case, org.apache.geronimo.jmxremoting.Authenticator.authenticate() is getting
a LoginException with error 
> "javax.security.auth.login.LoginException: No LoginModules configured for geronimo-admin".
However this exception is not propogated, but rather is thrown back as a 'SecurityException("Invalid
login")'.
