[Zope] Zope authentication and IE6 nightmare

I have a simple user folder product that reads off users from a MySQL db 
and uses ZSessions for session tracking. I am observing a strange 
phenomena in IE.

When I try to logout if the product has been refreshed, the logout works 
fine with the right user credentials, however after that it always calls 
the logout method as Anonymous User. But if I press the back button and 
try to see the logout page (authenticateed users only) it allows me to 
see it and even allows me to refresh it (in the browser).

Also my logout process essentially sends a 401 reauthenticate to the 
browser. After logout (privided I have logged in once)  if I try to see 
a protected page, IE6 will try to authenticate once. But I can cancel 
that and refresh the page and it happily sends back the credentials it 
cached somewhere.

Has anybody else seen this problem and/or gotten around it??
