well, that's probably a misunderstanding. The browser should send a
cookie on any request, first or not. You need to pick it up manually
and also manually look into the userdb. You won't have it in a variable
MV_USERNAME on the first page access, though...

Btw, I just checked with the construct demo, and this sets the cookie
only as a session cookie despite the fact that I have

CookieLogin  Yes

in my catalog.cfg. So this should imho be changed to be a long term
cookie, then it should work. You'll also need to check a password
in MV_PASSWORD which contains the cleartext password.
