this is where it got real interesting.  I did that with one image and
got the path displayed in the browser window.  did a second one and got
the path displayed again.  clicked the back button to the first image,
and again back to the secured page and the image showed up on the secure
page.  forward and back buttons on the absolute URL's made the images
appear in the secured page.

I then clicked on a non-secure link on the site and the images were
displayed on the non-secure page.  clicked on a secure link on the site
and the images were NOT displayed.  entered absolute URL's, clicked back
button and the images appeared on the secure page.
