I have no proxies or changing IPs and it is just me using the BE.  The
.htaccess it the default from the install.
A couple of other things that I have noticed; This problem did not
happen in v4.5 only in v4.6x.  I also do not see this problem in the
FE.  So I guess my question is what is the difference between the FE and
the BE login?
