Ahhhh. Now that I know this, I see how I misread the comments in the
sample conf file, particularly this part:

### This option controls the location of the password database. This
### path may be relative to the conf directory. There is no default.
### The format of the password database is:
### [users]
### USERNAME = PASSWORD

I had uncommented the [users] line in the sample...

Anyhow, now that I change it to have just the [global] section in the
conf file, it does seem to authenticate me...

Thanks!
