Failed to load users/passwords/role files

While the JBoss application is running a series of queries against SQL Server via JDBC a FileNotFoundException is thrown with the message "Failed to load users/passwords/role files C:\...\ (The system cannot find the file specified)" . Why would it be attempting to do authentication in this context (does it verify on every connection to the database)?
Thanks for any help.

A wild guess here is that you've got the "other" realm set up by default in login-config.xml and that it is being used by default because you haven't specified a security-domain in your jboss-ejb.xml. And the wild guess goes on to speculate that when there is no security domain specified, this default UsersRolesLoginModule tries to look up 'anonymous' in the file name mentioned.

I have seen things you people would not believe, attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion, c-beams sparkling in the dark near the Tennhauser Gate. All these moments will be lost in time, like tears in the rain.
