I am not using JavaScript at all.  It is a vanilla struts app. I am 
suspecting that appserver is redirecting to authserver.
But I do not know how proxy is getting bypassed. Come to think of it, 
probably I should take your cue
and run the browser in debug/trace mode and dump all the info. and see 
what is happening between browser and web server.
I do not know how I can do this with Internet Explorer. Do you know of 
any browser that can do this?
