When you say "the client is still sending the username/password". I
but, because I only use relative urls, Zope seems to maintain the same
security "context" thoughout the "session" (a relative url would be href
= "dir1\dir2"). I am looking for some way to refresh this security
"context" to use the new password.
It is really confusing for the login to pop up at this point-
it looks like it is asking for permissions to change the password (
needs OLD password)

There is absolutely nothing wrong with that.
Basic authentication works by sending the username and password with
each request. You've changed the password on the server, but the client
is still sending the old password, which doesn't authenticate them any
The user'd have to do it sometime, why not right after their password is
BTW, the proper forum for this type of question is the main Zope mailing
