When you say "can't authenticate" - does the browser come back with the
user/password dialog, or some other thing?

I just tried your example, and it worked for me.... In the old versions of
apache you had to call to call get_basic_auth_pw() before trying to read
value of req.user, but that's not longer true I think. May be tried
swapping those two lines, but I think the problem is elsewhere.
