ASP.NET Ajax page method on login page requires setting location in web.config

I have spent quite a while on this one, so I deliver my findings here hoping that it will help.

If you have an ASP.NET web site with forms authentication and your login page has an ASP.NET Ajax extensions page method, this method will not work unless you set:

<location path="login.aspx">
<allow users="*"/>

Otherwise, the call to ~/login.aspx/yourScriptMethod fails because it is not authenticated.
