Hi on win 32 with python 2.2.2, installed last version 3.01, added missing mscvrt70.dll
and everything works great!

I wanted to try out the doc tutorial 
<Directory /mywebdir>
AddHandler python-program .py
PythonHandler myscript
PythonAuthenHandler myscript
PythonDebug On
AuthType Basic
AuthName "Restricted Area"
require valid-user

with script

from mod_python import apache
def authenhandler(req):
user = req.user
pw = req.get_basic_auth_pw()
if user == "spam" and pw == "eggs":
return apache.OK

it works but req.user is always None
I printed user, pw to apache log and got None eggs
ie password is well passed, but not user
so the authentication results in neverending pop up login window

I checked from mozilla and opera browser

thanks for any help
