I ran through all the GroupAttributes?action=attr for all the groups and 
ran 'clear' on everything except a few Wiki Administrator areas that are 
common to every wiki install.

I ran through SiteAdmin/AuthList to make sure there was nothing out of 
the ordinary.

I confirmed authuser as being the first include_once().

phpinfo() shows session's are enabled and the save path is reasonable.

I've assigned an 'attr' password now, it has not helped.

I am now attempting session.auto_start = 1; in php.ini..... Nope, still 
required to log in twice. Reverting auto_start to 0.


host$ grep include_once config.php


There is a CondAuth near the end of config.php that sets Fox permissions.

None of these are found: RetrieveAuthPage(), PageTextVar(), PageVar()


I will soon (next day or so) be commenting out all the cookbooks and 
seeing if one of them is somehow causing the muss.
