In the login page a cast is made in the default method to turn the context user into an site identity. This relies on the page_load event in the base class turning the contect.user into a site principle.
It appears that the page_load event in the base class is not triggered until the page_load method of the webform has completed though. I can't see how this can be got round using the base page model.
There seem to be a few posts about this on the forum but no solution that I have been able to make work.
