Thanks Mark.  I will keep that in mind, but it looks like the defaults will do it from now
However, any idea about the last section of my post?
Specifically, why the SSlAuthenticator was kicking in when the auth method was defined as
Basic?  (note, no SSL auth method was configured in the web.xml, but the SSLAuthenticator
was configured in the context.xml.)  Just curious about that.
