Apache ProxyPass and Crowd Integration


I have the following apache confivuration on a virtual host

<VirtualHost *:80>
    ServerName some.server.com
    RewriteEngine On
    ProxyPreserveHost On

    <Location />
    AuthName "App Authentication"
    AuthType Basic
    AuthBasicProvider crowd

    CrowdAppName app
    CrowdAppPassword app_pass
    CrowdURL http://crowd-server.com:8095/crowd/

    Require valid-user

    ProxyPass / http://my-tomcat.com:8080/MyApp/
    ProxyPassReverse / http://my-tomcat.com:8080/MyApp/
    ErrorLog logs/some.server.com-error_log
    CustomLog logs/some.server.com-access_log common

This is almost working... it is ask for the loggin when you go to some.server.com, which i provide, and, after being authenticated, it proxy the tomcat request. The problem happens when a different path (other than the app root context) on the tomcat server gets selected, it asks for authentication again. Do I need a cookie somwhere? Can anyone help?
