Peter's point was that page specific authorisations always need to be
set in the page, via action=attr, or in the groups GroupAttributes
page, via action=attr, never via conditionals in config.php.
All $DefaultPasswords items should be set in config.php only, and not
set with group or page specific conditionals, as these will not have
any effect for  a page which is included via (:include ...:).
But an included page's (access-) attributes will be recognised and

So there is no bug. One just cannot do  a shortcut of setting page or
group specific access authorisations in config.php or a Page or Group
php file. They need to be set in the page.
The spread  of authorisation settings on multiple pages is unavoidable
in PmWiki's security model. AuthList just helps to see it in one
