I tested it both with and without AuthUser, with and without setting 
$DefaultPasswords['delete'], and it works like it should:
- if the page has a delete password, it is requested;
- if not, if GroupAttributes has a delete password, it is requested;
- if not, if $DefaultPasswords['delete'] is set, it is requested;
- if not, the 'edit' password is needed (page, group or site, or a logged-in 
user with edit permissions).

When deleting a page, check of you aren't logged with the administrator
