Are you using Mozilla, Netscape >= 6.0 or another mozilla based browser?
If so, you might be hitting a little odd-but-rfc-allowed mozilla
behaviour where, even after asking the user for basic-auth credentials
for a protected page, it doesn't send them for other protected pages in
the same domain until the web server has responded with
'authorization-required' for every one of them. Because of that, when
you're viewing a page in Zope that is protected by cookie based
authentication, mozilla will not send basic-auth credentials at first,
causing the cookie login form to kick in before zope issues an
'authorization-required' response.

I hope this explanation is not too confusing :-)

Anyway, try accessing your site with another browser to see if the
problem persists. Konqueror, for instance, doesn't have this problem.
