[Koha] Unexpected behavior in 3.14 bootstrap OPAC User login

The URLs are different.  It looks to me as if it has something to do with
an auto login feature outside of Koha, but as we've been up to our eyeballs
in meetings and etc. we haven't had a chance to look any further.  I can
confirm that no one else on the staff has experienced this.  It seems to
only happen on Doug's computer, I've seen it with my own eyes, so it must
be something he has set up there.  Very odd. . .
I expect the chances of anyone else replicating this is pretty slim if I
can't do it. But I would like to know why it's happening, just in case
there's a vulnerability in Koha.
