This has the form which is posting the un/pw back to itself.. then upon successful authentication, I see the session being created in the logs and then it's redirecting to the "main" page. It's almost taken 100% from the Cookbook. (There are errors in the code in the Cookbook that I've had to fix) -- and again, it's working from Firefox. I think I have everything correct, IE just doesn't take it.

IE being retarded, have you tried running the test server with either -k 
(keepalive) or -f (fork)? I've seen inexplicable problems magically go 
away by doing that before (and never show up if you've got an HTTP proxy 
in front of the test server, or if you're using anything else to serve 
the app, or if the phase of the moon is different, and of course if 
you're using anything except Intarwub Exploder) ...
