Hi Peter,

Thanks for supplying these patches.  I've taken care of the easy ones (2,
3, 4, 5) and wanted to update you on the status of the others:

(1) As was briefly discussed on the list, more is going to be necessary
    than just using a redirect in order to ensure that a POST transaction
    that triggers form-based login is handled correctly.  I'm going to
    continue working on that.

(6) This was recently fixed (since Beta 5), and should work correctly in
    recent nightly builds.  You might want to wait until tonight, to
    make sure that the other fixes now work for you.

(7) This code compiles for me on Windows using JDK 1.3.0_02 (not using
    Forte, but I don't think that matters).  Would it be possible for you
    to try that version (and/or 1.3.1)?  I know there were some recent
    bugfixes related to inner classes, and I think these were the revs
    that fixed them.

(8) As you've observed, the code in JspServlet is a little, um, er,
    obtuse :-).  I want to spend some more time understanding what's
    actually happening here before changing anything.
