Do you want to password protect for all users, even for viewing (ie, 
even read)?

That should read $DefaultPasswords (with the $ sign prefix), and should 
be towards the start of config.php.

I presume then you do not get the login prompt? What happens if you put 
?action=edit at the end of the url? Do you see the same thing?

Also check that the same behavior happens on other pages. Perhaps you 
have permissions for the page/group specified fom action=attr.
