  You mean re-authenticate for every request?  That would require

  The module doesn't set the cookie on a failed login, so there
shouldn't be any problem.

  I don't see why that would happen.  The module was designed, and
tested to work properly in that situation.

  Can you explain more about what you're doing, how, and what browser
you're using?
