It sounds like it; make sure you have the "No Challenge if
Authenticated" plugin enabled.
My suggestion above makes no sense at all. :)
I like your original idea of finding a way to cache the fact that a user
is authenticated. I'd like to see a plugin that stores that information
in a session, that way the plugin could be used with zc.winauth or any
other credential mechanism.
Per your performance problems: we have used zc.winath in a pretty
heavily-loaded environment with a user-store of more than 5,000 entries.
Unless you have massively more users than that, I would think you
should be able to get decent performance. We had some similar
performance problems and I was able to re-configure the server on-which
Zope was running such that the authentication was much faster. I wish I
remembered the details, hopefully Google and MSDN will be helpful.
