To enter this bug in your database, I've had to enter my
E-mail and my password three times (plus turn on cookie
support in my browser).  And I'll keep having to enter that
information repeatedly for any further interaction with your
bugzilla web pages.
HTTP authentication was not invented just for the fun
of it.

This is the most frequent complaint about bugzilla, and we are fixing
it.  It's not trivial.
