Hi Tim,

Avi's away at the moment and I'm about to head out for the day.  Any 
chance you could file a bug at http://bugs.beta4.com/ with as much 
detail as you can so we can make sure to take a look at it?

My only initial thought is that there's some kind of cacheing issue 
going or your browser not handling redirects quite right.  But I don't 
know the innards of the Basic Auth stuff well.

As for IE, I have problems like that all the time. Eventually even 
shift-reload doesn't seem to work anymore and then if I'm lucky quitting 
*all* my IE windows and opening a new one works...

I'll try to find time to look at this tomorrow or the next...

If anyone else has any advice to add in the meantime I'd be happy to 
hear it :)
