No answer yet, so here's some more information, sort of.

>From what I can tell, when authentication and redirection fails, the query
paramaters aren't being gathered, so no authentication is taking place.

    my $username = $c->request->params->{username} || ""; 
    my $password = $c->request->params->{password} || "";

DBIC_TRACE-ing showed me there never was a query to authenticate, and this
debug statement seems to show the query parameters are never acquired. 

Except, _sometimes_ they are. 

Sending the query parameters directly after the url works every time.

Any thoughts?
