Asking for authentication where it shouldn't really
I have configured Tvheadend ACLs to allow streaming and webui access from localhost without username and password for the HTTP reverse proxy at :80, and I have an administrational account with password, which I access through :9981.
Since in newer releases, the system log seems to belong to the administrational information (which I think is very right), this leads to the browser prompting for authentication when I access the interface on Port 80. That dialog can be cancelled and the rest of the webui works fine.
Attached are screenshots of the ACL config tab and the authentication prompt with the rest of the website visible in the background.
Issue #1369 - move iptv service type store inside main tab function else it causes a 401 error for non-admin UI users.

My initial guess, that it is due to the logging pane might be wrong!
I observed that the authentication dialog comes at a point of initial page loading when only the EPG tab is shown. If I cancel the dialog, DVR and About get shown.
Maybe it's because authentication for the Configuration tab is checked then.
Just a vague guess...
