Hi Cole,

   I havn't tried any of this but Can you see if the same thing happens
if you restrict apache to 1 python process, by setting up a process group

WSGIDaemonProcess pgroup processes=1 threads=1
WSGIProcessGroup pgroup

it may be no help at all but if you still have the same problem after
this change you know its not caused by having multiple python processes.

what I'm trying to rule out is the possibility of one python process
authenticating and then another (if there is one) receiving the second
request from your browser. The default number of processes may actually
be 1 but its worth trying by setting it explicitly.
