Reply.  I put print statements in the mod_auth_digest file to see values.

I didn't see subsequent call, but I forgot to check the timestamps.

I'll look again.

    You won't see anything special on the Apache 
side, I don't think.

   I believe the only difference between the 
first authentication and subsequent requests 
is that the browser (hopefully) sends the 
user/pass with each request, so there is no 
need for Apache to return a 401, causing the 
clinet to pop up the authentication dialog 
and re-request the page with the authentication
info the secodn time around.
