Problem logging in to the admin after upgrading django framework.

I transfered a project from an old release 0.96.x I believe to the 1.0 version of django, and could not log into the admin. It seems the authentication subsystem could not calculate the correct password or could not find the user in the database (SQLite3).
After some digging I found that it was a reference to a middleware-class (django.middleware.doc.XViewwMiddleware) in my MIDDLEWARE_CLASSES setting ( that caused the problems. Removing this resolved the problem.
Maybe you could add this piece of information to the FAQ.

I must add that I think the documentation is excellent!

The XViewMiddleware doesn't cause the problem you describe: if it did, we'd have a lot more bug reports of this nature.
