Are you trying to use your own custom handler for working with Cheetah,
or some version of the example Cheetah handler in Vampire itself?

I know there would be an issue with trying to implement the login page
itself in Cheetah which I don't have a solution for yet. This is because
the whole scheme relies on being able to turn off the login handler for
just the login page and because of how Cheetah works, that isn't that

Leaving the login page as it is in the example, ie., non Cheetah, I can
quite happily stick Cheetah stuff in the same directory and Cheetah
page access can be protected by login.

Anyway, maybe you can explain a bit better how you have changed things
as not completely sure what you are trying to do. In the meantime I'll
get a full Cheetah example working somehow with the session based login.
