Never mind!  I found out my error and have corrected it.  In case anyone 
stumbles on the same issue, I'll share my mistake:

When I moved the custom skin files into the directory I wanted them 
applied to ( /hawaii/), I inadvertently copied over an empty acl_users 
folder.  B/c this folder did not specify any cookie settings, its 
presence essentially disabled cookies for that folder and consequently 
disabled my login script.

live and learn!
