The input filter is added to the processor during the processing of the 
final request in the FORM authentication sequence and the data in it is 
consumed during the processing of this request. There is no need for 
this filter, or the data in it, to persist across multiple requests.

Data is persisted between requests (of course it has to be so FORM auth 
can take place) but this is done in the session and therefore it does 
not matter if the processor that handles the original request is 
different from the one that handles the FORM auth request or the final 
redirect to the original URL.

At the moment I do see what is so badly broken about this that justifies 
a -1.
