You guess is wrong. Everything is working exactly as it should.

FORM authentication requires a session to work whereas BASIC does not.
You have not configured your 2 Tomcat instances for session replication
(get your test page to print out the session ID to confirm this). If you
don't want a second login when you move from node 1 to node 2, you'll
need to configure session replication (aka clustering).
