Click through login not working

In my wiki, I make extensive use of links that create new topics for users with specific templates and forms. In versions of foswiki prior to 1.1, these worked find through the login process (i.e., if a user as not logged in, they could click on the link, would be prompted to log in and then the process would resume on the new topic). In Foswiki 1.1.x, this no longer works. The user is prompted to log in but then the wiki complains "Topic 'KnowledgeArticleAUTOINC0' does not exist" rather than going to the new topic. If you use the back arrow and click on the link again (you are now logged in), it works fine. None of these links have changed since the upgrades from 1.0.x.

Here's an example:

<form name='createKnowledge' action='%SCRIPTURLPATH{"edit"}%/%WEB%/'>
<input type="submit" class="foswikiSubmit" value='%MAKETEXT{"Contribute!"}%' />
<input type="hidden" name="topic" value="KnowledgeArticleAUTOINC0" />
<input type="hidden" name="nonwikiword" value="on" />
<input type="hidden" name="topicparent" value="WebHome" />
<input type="hidden" name="onlynewtopic" value="on" />
<input type="hidden" name="Classification" value="News" />
<input type="hidden" name="formtemplate" value="Main.KnowledgeForm" />
<input type="hidden" name="templatetopic" value="Main.KnowledgeTemplate" />
<input type="hidden" name="Status" value="Active" />
</form>

Any ideas what has happened?

We would need to know what login manager you are using (Apache or Template), plus what your {AuthScripts} setting is in configure.
