What version are you running?
reviewboard 1.6.2, rbtools 0.3.2_1

What's the URL of the page containing the problem?

What steps will reproduce the problem?
1. Checkout source code and make some changes
2. Specify the url for reviewboard server in .reviewboardrc file
3. Run post-review to post the diff to the server

What is the expected output? What do you see instead?
User/password should be prompted to the user and diff is posted to the server. But actually I see the following error messages:
$ post-review

AttributeError: 'NoneType' object has no attribute 'code'

What operating system are you using? What browser?
FreeBSD 8.2 Release. It's rbtools issue.

Please provide any additional information below.
It seems that the post-review tool will first try to access the URL
http://<review-board-url>/api/repositories before user login.
But if the administrator has disabled anonymous access of the reviewboard site, the URL above is not allowed to access until the user logs in. So I guess that the post-review tool should try to authenticate the user before visiting '/api/repositories' URL.

The apache configuration is as follows:

        DocumentRoot "/usr/local/www/reviewboard/htdocs"

        # Error handlers
        ErrorDocument 500 /errordocs/500.html

        WSGIPassAuthorization On
WSGIScriptAlias "/" "/usr/local/www/reviewboard/htdocs/reviewboard.wsgi/"

        <Directory "/usr/local/www/reviewboard/htdocs">
                AllowOverride All
                Options -Indexes FollowSymLinks
                Allow from all
