is there any chance you have an existing user named ken5? maybe try a known new name in the
ini file, and see if that helps. if it does, then ken5 is probably conflicting with a user
in the user's db. 

Another thing you can do, is after you are logged in, request /_session from the couch, and
report back what JSON you see.
