In this case, set mv_nextpage and mv_successpage to index permanently, 
if the login page is displayed. For example

<FORM ACTION="[process secure=1]" METHOD=POST>
<INPUT TYPE=hidden NAME=mv_todo  VALUE=return>
<INPUT TYPE=hidden NAME=mv_click VALUE=Login>
<INPUT TYPE=hidden NAME=mv_failpage VALUE="login">
<INPUT TYPE=hidden NAME=mv_successpage VALUE="index">
<INPUT TYPE=hidden NAME=mv_nextpage VALUE="index">
<input type=hidden name=mv_session_id value="[data session id]">
