Resubmit to j_security_check mistakenly fetches a page of that name

More thoughts... caveat emptor: if the request is forwarded to the login page
eg with this patch, then it generally becomes impossible to use a static 
resource for that page. This is because relative URLs in the page for images 
etc, as seen by the browser, will be relative to the secured resource, not
the login page. With static html this is awkward to fix.

Obviously this might cause some breakage, but the old behaviour is broken for
everyone. This sprang to mind 'cos I was wondering if I could make it easier to
get my patch accepted if I made it a customizable feature, as described in
http://www.mail-archive.com/tomcat-dev@jakarta.apache.org/msg36852.html ? That
way the old behaviour could be preserved for those who want it. I don't mind
which is the default.

Bill Barker - if you're reading this, I'd be interested in seeing your 
patch (not in cvs yet?) so I can produce one that works the same way.
