Well that obviously makes sense however I don't know how to track this.
I check who is logged into the web site and the swishe user never
appears as an authenticated client but appears as a non-authenticated
client (I see this by IP address).

Not exactly sure what you mean here. The login page after successfully
authenticated redirects to the homepage and yes there is links to spider
from that point. In my web server access logs I only see two log entries
when I initiate the indexing. So for some reason Swishe is dyeing at
/login/. - - [21/Feb/2008:10:07:07 -0600] "GET /robots.txt HTTP/1.1"
200 253 "-" "swish-e spider" - - [21/Feb/2008:10:07:09 -0600] "GET
/login/?szID=username&szPWD=password HTTP/1.1" 302 6226 "-" "swish-e

Honestly I am at a loss now as I'm not sure what to try to resolve this
issue let alone track down more information to see what the problem is.
I'm rather confused as to why Swishe is not getting past the login page.
Is there some way I can see everything its doing?
