Subject Re: LDAP Login problems (Login.jsp?redirect issue)

I'd forgotten about that particular post. Glad you got benefit from  
it. I should probably add it to the official docs. :)

Are you using a custom Authorizer by any chance? I fixed a recent bug  
in 2.8.1 that prevented custom roles from being added. Sounds a little  
like your issue, actually. Could you try the 2.8.2 nightly build and  
see if it helps?

If not, we can explore the container authentication config options.
