Hello,

I can't reproduce your problem on the dev server using this minimal setup:

app.yaml


application: test
version: 1
runtime: python27
api_version: 1
threadsafe: true

handlers:
- url: /.* 
  script: main.app
  secure: always
  login: optional


main.py

import webapp2


class IndexHandler(webapp2.RequestHandler):

    def get(self):
        self.response.write('Hello world!')


app = webapp2.WSGIApplication([('/', IndexHandler)], debug=True)


Are you sure that there's nothing in your code or environment that could be 
causing the authentication challenge?

Cheers,

Kev
