IE 5.01 has an issue with its basic auth. There is no patch, only an upgrade

Subject: [PHP-DB] Odd browser problem with sessions

I have a web site that is protected using sessions, and it works fine. 
Only occasionally
when a end-user tries to log in using IE the login screen will just 
reload, every time they
try to log in. I found that by closing IE (all windows) then trying again, 
it will go on to the 
proper page. This behavior appears to only effect IE, I saw it once on 
either Netscape
or Mozilla (I don't recall which), and no one I've talked to on the phone 
has had this 
problem in any browser other than IE, and there have been many calls about 
this. Any
idea what this might be caused by?
