In Fluid.
Issue verified on PT8.56.09.

Components using PeopleCode Function RevalidatePassword() in Component PreBuild event.



When Accessing a Fluid Component, that uses PeopleCode Function RevalidatePassword() in Component PreBuild event, and that is part of a Fluid navigation collection, after re-entering credentials in the 'Verify Identity' dialog box, the Left Panel Navigation becomes irresponsive.



The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps - (Verified on HCM 9.2 PUM Image# 25 with PT8.56.09):

1. Using Application Designer, Add a call to RevalidatePassword() in Component PeopleCode PY_IC_W4_FL.GBL.PreBuild
    E.g.: &return = RevalidatePassword();
  
2. In PIA, open the Employee Self Service Homepage and click on the Payroll Tile.
    The Paychecks Component (PY_IC_PAY_INQ_FLU) opens in the target area.
  
3. In the Left Panel Navigation, click on Tax Withholding
    The 'Verify Identity' dialog box opens up.
    Enter the password and click Continue, or click on Cancel.
  
4. Try to access the other components in the Left Panel Navigation.
    Nothing happens. The Left Panel Navigation is irresponsive.
