I was experiencing the same problem with IE6, but not with Mozilla.  That 
implies the problem is one with IE6 and may still be a cookie problem even 
though it is not apparent by inspecting the HTTP_COOKIE environmental 
variable.  In my case cookies from koha were being blocked for some 
reason.  In IE6 check View/Privacy Report, then find the path to koha.  If 
the word "blocked" is found beside the URL, then hightligt that line, and 
click on the summary button.  Click the radio button that says "Always 
allow this site to use cookies," and click OK.  That, at least, took care 
of having to enter a UserID and password for every screen in koha.
