Usual things to check:

    Check the exceptions hidden in HTML comments in the login form. Make
    sure that the access exception that caused the login form to appear
    is from the document you tried to access, and not one of the GUF hooks.
    Grant access to the Anonymous role if required.

    Grant the Manager proxy role to all your hooks, and see if things
    start working. If it does, you can start trimming down permissions
    until you have tracked down exactly where the elevated provilidges
    are required.
