Feel free to redirect me to tomcat-user :-), but is there any way to 
filter the form login page, or is it un-filtrable ?

If it is included/forwarded/etc - it should be included from somewhere, 
and a filter would apply there. From what I see in the code, the form 
login happens before the filters - so I'm starting to understand why it 
doesn't work, but from a spec point a view, it looks like a small bug.
