What kind of "call to this file" do you use? <br>
The call is &lt;<span class="start-tag">frame</span><span
 class="attribute-name"> marginwidth </span>=<span
 class="attribute-value"> "0" </span><span class="attribute-name">marginheight
</span>=<span class="attribute-value"> "5" </span><span
 class="attribute-name">src</span>=<span class="attribute-value">"clock.html"
</span><span class="attribute-name">name </span>=<span
 class="attribute-value"> "sac" </span><span class="attribute-name">scrolling
</span>=<span class="attribute-value"> "no" </span><span
 class="attribute-name">frameborder </span>=<span
 class="attribute-value"> "0"</span>&gt;<br>

You should trace all the requests your browser is making as part of <br>
whatever document is being requested. In one of these requests, the <br>
hostname is probably changing, resulting in the new auth. <br>
(Alternatively, perhaps there is simply a browser bug causing it to <br>
forget credentials.) But there is really no way for us to know what is <br>
going on from this side of the firewall.
I have tried to perform a trace by using Ethereal. Please find the
complete .cat file attached, from the first log in until the second
autenticathion is requested. I guess the most important part is the
end, because at some point the browser stops sending the aut info at
the end of the frame. I don't know if it is casual but that point is
when a .JAR file request is sent.<br>
Do please me know if there is any extra information I can give you.<br>
