AFAIU, AuthForm is not reallly a login page but rather a form which is
sent when your actual rights are not sufficients to execute the action
you ask for.
In my example, since my wiki is read protected, trying to access any
page of the wiki triggers the authentication process and then bring up
the authform.
The interesting thing is that pmwiki *remembers* the page you ask for,
shows you the authentication form and then show you the page you ask
at the beginning in cas of a successfull authentication.

I'm not sure this can work if you make a redirect from Site.AuthForm
to another login page. Did you try accessing not the home page  but
another protected page and see if you're finally redirected to this
page once authenticated ?
