Does this require valid credentials to be entered in order to show the warning?

I've just tried it on a BBxM with NS 3357 and RO 5.22. I don't have a Plusnet account, so I just entered username "fred" and password "jim". After a few seconds, the page came back complaining (as it should!) that the credentials were invalid.

Yes you do have to log in first. I've tried it again with #3358 and got the same result. I quit at that point and saved the log.
