I think I've finally got to the bottom of the login and AWOL session 
variable issue. But I need a final tweak.

I have a login form in the sidebar - just username and password. The 
form (until today) started:

  (:input form id=login :)

This works fine except for the bizarre missing session variable problem 
(which I can circumvent by moving the appropriate recipe include before 
authuser.php in farmconfig.php).

By changing the above line to:

  (:input form "?action=login" id=login :)

the missing session variable problem goes away. However, when I make 
this change, whenever an invalid login occurs, authform is opened in 
wikitext. I don't want this, as the error messages displays in the 
sidebar form, which is sufficient.

How do I stop authform from displaying when a login failure occurs?

Alternatively, is there a better solution to using "?action=login"?
