[pmwiki-users] UserAuth - problem with default pmwiki passwords

I installed UserAuth (0.63) and using pmwiki beta36 and happened to have 
default passwords specified in local/config.php for admin, edit, upload 
capabilites. I had to remove the default password for edit and 
explicitly specify crypt('nopass') for both the upload and pwchange 
default passwords to make things work for an ordinary user who had 
read,edit,upload capabilities in the .htpasswd file.

Thanks for any help with understanding where I may be going wrong, as I 
believe they should work together based on documentation and reading 
code and comments in userauth.php.

By the way, I was able to verify by printing out the variables that the 
password in $_REQUEST['wiki_pw'],level,and pagename seemed correct 
before passed into CheckPmWikiPassword(), but still wikipw_wiki_check = 
false after the call to CheckPmWikiPassword, but should have come out 
true(I think it should have, as edit default password matches and works 
  if userauth not installed). This was at the point where the user auth 
has succeeded and now pmwiki password is being checked. Also, I verified 
that if I remove the include for userauth.php in local/config.php, then 
the pmwiki default passwords work fine again.

Thanks, Bill Wraith
