[mod_python] Bizarre problems with rewriting URLs?

The URL is generally any URL as long as it ends in /editor/. I don't  
think it happens anywhere else.

def authenhandler(req):
	if get_prefix(req): return apache.OK # This fetches the database  
prefix from a PythonOption.
	global conn
	conn = MySQLdb.connect(**cparams)
	global curs
	if curs: curs.close()
	curs = conn.cursor()
	user = req.user
	pw = req.get_basic_auth_pw()
	# fetch the salted hash and an administrative flag from an SQL database
	if not fetchedpw:
		return 401
	hash = sha.sha()
	if crypt.crypt(hash.hexdigest(), fetchedpw) != fetchedpw:
		return 401
	if user == PREFIX or isadmin:
		return apache.OK
	return 403
