OK, I have a hard time believing this because this IS strange. That said http://localhost
is redirected to http://localhost/xampp
by the index.php file in /xampp/htdocs. So it's landing in the same place. If you've already logged in to http://localhost/xampp
then it should not ask you again whichever URL you use.
Why one works differently than the other could be due to simply it's configured differently. It may be a very subtle difference at that.
