I just realized -- if the user types their name and password, hits enter 
and gets the "Internal Server Error" page, hasn't their password already 
been sent in the clear from browser to server?  This would defeat the 
purpose of my intention to only allow PAM authentication via https. 
Sure, PAM authentication would be off, but the name and password (I 
think) would still be sent in the clear.  Do you or anyone else have any 
suggestions of how to get around this?
