Try it! If tomcat doesn't have a session id to store the user's request 
with when tomcat is stepping in between with the login procedure, then 
tomcat will not know where the login submission has come from once the 
user clicks the login form's submit. This leads directly to a 
j_security_check not available 404 error.
