Well, I guess I didn't try as much as I thought I did. I was confusing 
DIGEST authentication with digested passwords, though I know better. I 
was entering the cleartext password in the Realm database, instead of 
the digested version of the cleartext password. Now it works. However, I 
still don't know why the UserDatabaseRealm didn't work, since that realm 
doesn't use digested passwords. But that was only for test purposes anyway.
