I'm glad you found your answer - from the last mail I was not yet sure
where the problem was.
To add a bit to the findings (for documentary purposes only):
Indeed on login the credentials picked up from the $_POST variables are
first checked and then a redirection is performed to the new page.
I did not specifically engineer something about this, but rather copied
the behaviour of the former module in assumption that there will be a
reason for doing it this way. It is necessary at latest when we want to
directly jump from extern into the edit mode of a page, which should
prompt a login screen first but then directly go the edit form.
Another interesting thing to note is that the pmwiki engine does not
expect the auth module call to return _in all events_, but rather do its
redirection in its own responsiblity when necessary. This was a suprise to
me when I first saw this in the former module, but ok. In any case, that's
why you will see some "exit;"s in the UA2 code.
Hope this will help someone sometime.
