Roland, I'm unable to reproduce this with either IE or Netscape as the
browser (against current CVS code).  Could you try it again with Tomcat
4.0-rc1 or a currently nightly build?

Note that it should not make any difference which Realm you are using,
because the Realm is not involved in the actual HTML code that is
displayed.  It *might* make a difference which login method you are using
(I tested with form-based, on the assumption that this was your scenario
as well.

If you still have problems, please report a bug to our bug tracking
