Subject [Patch] provide useful error entry if AuthType is missing
Date Thu, 13 Nov 1997 21:34:34 GMT

if a user tries to use authentication and forgets to set AuthType
he will the following error:

 configuration error:  couldn't check user.  No user file?

The appended patch provides a correct error message if the
authentication failure was due to a missing AuthType directive.

BTW, is there a reason why "Basic" isn't the default AuthType
