Please describe the problem.

Recently I've noticed that the webapp is missing CSS styles. Upon inspection it seems that the CSS and JS resources fail to load with "401 Unauthorized" responses. If I copy the "?auth=" parameter from the main URL then I can access any of them, but I guess the session cookie isn't working.

What steps will reproduce the problem?

  1. Start the assistant with "git annex assistant start" or "git annex assistant" or "git annex assistant --autostart"
  2. Open the webapp with "git annex webapp" or by opening $ANNEX_DIR/.git/annex/webapp.html
  3. The web app is missing all style and javascript resources

What version of git-annex are you using? On what operating system?

Have you had any luck using git-annex before? (Sometimes we get tired of reading bug reports all day and a lil' positive end note does wonders)

done, my fix worked! Don't know entirely why it was needed.. --Joey
