(This is a follow up to this thread:
but I've made a lot of changes).
I have a fresh reviewboard 1.5 install. I cannot get authentication
to the web api working at all. I have a superuser account setup.
(I get the same results with the admin account). I've tried a perl
script, but I've fallen back to the web browser and wget. I'm trying:
$ wget --http-user=test --http-password=test http://reviewboard/api/info/

I did a tcpdump and I seem to be sending the right auth header:
Authorization: Basic dGVzdDp0ZXN0\r\n
If I try the same url in firefox, I get the same results. Same,
basic auth header.
However, if I login to the reviewboard web site in firefox, and hit
that api url while still logged in, it works. I checked with Live
HHTP headers, and it's sending a cookie:
but no auth headers. I've turned on logging, but there's nothing
