Thank you Alan fpr your Statements
The problem is that, this fact happens on Linux and Windows clients and 
i don't know why and i don't know how to fix it.
The curious thing on that phenomenon is that the second trying works 
fine and so i thought i could be sure that everything on the client is 
all right. In an other case the second Authentification would not work 
too. Or is this wrong?
