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.
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
