Just to clarify Chuck's comments: a "note" has nothing to do with the
Servlet API. It's an implementation detail specific to Tomcat where,
among other things, authentication information is attached to the
session, yet not in a session attribute.

According to Filip, session "note" items are /not/ replicated around
clusters, so the information about a user being challenged for
credentials is also not replicated. This is the cause of your problem.

Filip confirms that session stickiness is the only easy solution.
