[pmwiki-users] Having problems adding a user to SiteAdmin/AuthUser

I have been trying to add a user to the SiteAdmin/AuthUser page and  
having a devil of a time trying to get it to work.

My SiteAdmin/AuthUser page source is at http://pastie.org/2138288 so  
you can see what I'm trying to do.

I am trying to add the user nikki, which you can see on line 20. I  
already have user tamara working (at line 18). Further down the page,  
you can see where I add nikki to existing groups (lines 38, 39).

When I go to test the new login, I get "Password required" and "Name/ 
password not recognized."  I am most positive I typed the name and  
password correctly.

I have had problems understanding the AuthUser mechanism in the past.  
I'm still rather stumped as to how to make it work correctly. The page  
itself is a little confusing. It wasn't until it was pointed out to me  
that the examples are commented out because of the leading space and  
octothorpe that I started to have a little bit of a clue. But now I'm  
back to being stumped.

Help, please?
