Yes, something changed. Previously CondAuth() didn't respect custom settings 
of the $HandleAuth array and it could return a wrong answer. For example, if 
you have a setting like this:

  $HandleAuth['read'] = 'edit';

then to "read" the page you need edit permissions. Previously, CondAuth could 
return true even if the user didn't have edit permissions.

The related PITS entry is http://www.pmwiki.org/wiki/PITS/01164 .

I'll double-check if something didn't go wrong somewhere -- if you can provide 
additional details about your configuration, that could be useful.
