I just found out that this is a known problem with the Coyote
connectors, both the HTTP connector and the JkHandler connector.
There is some code not implemented or something, and there is already a
bug report in bugzilla.

To verify if we are talking about the same thing, go back to using an
old non-Coyote connector and see if your form parameters
are preserved across the login.

This really needs to be fixed.  You can vote on the bug, it is #10229

It returns "null".

I noticed that it places all the POST/GET information into a session to
be
re-submitted to the actual page after successful login.  Know of a way
that I can
access the session information to extract a specific string in it?
