[LON-CAPA-dev] Round Robin

	My predicament: I've finally gotten around to trying a roundrobin 
with my two access servers through BIND. I've got capa7 and capa10.

	Here's the cute part - there seems to be two accesses to 
loncapa.phy.ohiou.edu in the login process before it transitions over to 
capa10 or capa7.

	What this means is that my round robin is dysfunctional unless two 
students are logging in at the same time (ie., one is half way through the 
process when the second comes on). Although a cute experiment in 
statistics, it doesn't help me much.

	Is there anyone who can tell me off the bat whether the login 
script can be modified to grab the actual machine name before submitting 
the user name and password information? My assumption is that it is 
pulling the name off the URL rather than the host machine. Can I tweak
