--- Comment #4 from Mark Thomas <> ---
There is one work-around already available. Set alwaysUseSession on the
Authenticator Valve.

I have added support for a second work-around to trunk and 7.0.x. This
work-around enables HTTP keep-alive to be disabled for specified user-agents if
they attempt to use SPNEGO. This will be included in 7.0.33 onwards.

I'm not a huge fan of adding the ability to cache information per connection as
that goes against the stateless nature of HTTP. That said, I'd be prepared to
look at a patch that did this and, depending on how invasive it was, would
consider such a patch for 8.0.x.
