Authentication problem on MOSS (login box keeps popping up)

Today I had a rather weird problem at a client. Whenever he tried to log on to his new extranet he had a login box coming up constantly, whatever he clicked on. First thought were changing the browser settings to automatically log in when on an intranet, but that didn’t fix it. When I connected to the site everything did work perfectly, so I still searched for a client setting. When checking out online I got some information about this error popping up when you have external content on your site. That was not the case, everything was local. The only thing on the site that wasn’t OOTB were the design elements. Just to try, I removed the design elements. The user tested and the login box disappeared, everything was working just fine. First idea was to check the security of the _layouts folder, but the standard SharePoint images were working just fine, so it couldn’t be the folder. I decided to check out the images in the 12 hive to see if there was something weird with them. And there it was, appearantly by copying the images to the 12 hive only the administrator had read/write acces to the images. Giving the authenticated users reading rights on the images fixed the issue.
