I'm sorry. I missed that.

The use of the term "login page" makes me wonder if maybe the error lies at some higher layer
than Apache. Apache implements authentication in ways that don't involve a "login page", and
so presumably this login page is from some third-party application, or something you have
coded yourself, Is there a HTTP Redirect involved in this page refresh, or is it a AJAX action?
Can you watch the traffic (either something like Firebug, or something on the server) to observe
what's happening, and where the message is getting dropped?
