SSO/Delegated Auth with the Power of Us Hub?

We're going to be turning on delegated authentication soon, but this seems like it will create a problem. Namely, that users will be forced (by the power of us hub) to log in through the native Salesforce login page, but that won't work once we turn on delegated authentication. It will always give them the error that our sso service is down.  So, they'll have to navigate back to our login page, login, then go back to the power of us hub page to log in. Seems cumbersome.

Anyone solve this?  Does this make sense?

Why do you say that users will give the error that SSO is down? You may want to look at this (http://salesforce.stackexchange.com/questions/20566/how-to-do-delegated-authentication-in-salesforce) thread to understand how delegated authentication works from an end user perspective.

Because we don't accept passwords from the Salesforce login page via delegated auth.  We require them to go through a local page that sends a token to the Salesforce login page that then sends it back and we locally check to make sure it wasn't tampered with. Ergo, trying to log into the power of us hub will cause a slight problem because when presented with the Salesforce login page they won't be able to log in.
