I'm trying to be global. As mentioned before in the thread, there's a
good few plugins that I was resorting to hacking. When I thought of
output buffer manipulation, this seemed preferrable to hacking loads
of plugins.

I guess the best option is to use the latest hook in wp-login.php -
which seems to be login_form. Works OK so far...

There's this ticket:


There doesn't seem to be much enthusiasm for it. As I've mentioned,
I'm not sure why, this is quite an issue for perceived security.
Anyway, being flat-out, and having found a workaround, I'll have to
postpone cheerleading this cause for another day unfortunately...
