OK, good.

Sorry, that was a bad thinko; I got distracted by the S and didn't get
the pattern and replacement in the right order.  The rule should be:

ProxyHTMLURLMap /application /

Try adding another rule in case the link is a full URL, like case 3 of
the HOWTO:


If it still doesn't work, use your browser's command to view the HTML
source of the login page and look for the link that contains
the /application string.  You'll need to design a ProxyHTMLURLMap rule
based on that link.
