Ditto with the browser/java access. In short, the server runs until a
viewer passes authentication, then it gets killed. If I put in an
intentional bad password, it fails to authenticate but does not kill the
server. Any ideas?

Are you using the binaries in an Solaris 2.4?
They are compiled for Solaris 2.5.
I had the same problem until I recompiled them for 2.4.
