Re: password-db failure?

I've tried that - it doesn't change anything :) If I have a password-db, it
gives me the "does not exist" error, *not* a "you do not have permissions"
error. That's what's confusing me - something about adding the password-db
line makes it no longer realize the repository exists in the first place.

Everything else appears to work fine, but if there's a password file, it
can't find the repository anymore.
