Yes, the other user shown there works fine, and has worked since I  
figured out how to use AuthUser the first time. This is the first time  
I've attempted to add another user.

I'm sure most people don't -- I have had nothing but problems with it  
since I started trying to use it. I got it into a working state  
somehow with one user, but now I can't seem to add additional users.

Um, why doesn't it work for me?

I have had it working with one user just fine. It's now when I attempt  
to add another user that things aren't working. In the past I had  
several problems with it, mostly from not understanding how to specify  
the users and groups in the page, to setting permissions on the  
various pages and groups. Right now, I do not see why it isn't working  
the way I expect it to, which is probably my error in not  
understanding how it works.

I thought I should just be able to add an additional user/password  
combo, add the user to the various groups, and have things work as  
ever with the new user. But as shown, it isn't working for me.
