I think it should do something like this:

You're currently logged in as '''{$AuthID}'''.

Logout {$AuthID} and login as someone else?

Name: __________
Password: ____________

Sorry!  That username and password combination is no good.  Maybe you
made a typing mistake?

Option 1: please try again:

Name: __________
Password: ____________

Option 2: [[Stay logged in as {$AuthID}]].

That last link should take them back to where they were before.  It's
a link so that there's an action for the by-now-frustrated user who
wants to click something and have it do what it's supposed to.
