Re: Authentication in Mosaic

If you control the server in question, then there is a trick which lets
you make Mosaic forget the information --- create a directory with a
.htaccess file which *always* denies access, by, e.g., requiring membership
in an empty group. Attempts to retrieve a file in that directory will
result in authentication failures, to which Mosaic responds by letting you
enter a new name and password.

But this is a kludge, and for foreign servers, I still don't know anything
that works.
