You could start the problem description by telling us the version of Tomcat you're using.
 It's likely not pertinent for this particular issue, but it's annoying to hide such information.

Think about it: you've declared the resources noted as being protected, authentication has
not occurred, yet somehow you're expecting Tomcat to magically ignore the protection settings
when the browser requests these resources?  You can't have it both ways - you need to place
the resources the form needs outside of the protected area.

Try fixing the first problem and see if the second one disappears.

You robbed your browser?  Or did you clean out its cache?
