Which browser(s) does this happen in?  Is this happening in Firefox as

I've had an application that exhibits similar behavior, but I've only
been able to reproduce the problem in IE.


Could be the same problem... I have a hunch on what it might be, but

Not sure if I am best posting this here or to spring but here goes.

I am using jcifs-1.2.25 with spring-security-2.0.4
My config is using

If I allow the session to timeout and request a new page then all is
I can see a new authentication occurring OK and the new page is

However, if again I allow the session to timeout on a page and then
click on a button that performs a document.submit()
the filter is again hit and attepts to do an authentication.
However this manifests itself as a windows authentication popup asking
for the users details.

How can I stop this authentication window popup occurring ?

Ideally the user should be returned to a default page due to the loss of
session data.
Also, Any ideas how this might be done ?
