Description

I follow the document <Authenticating against Django’s user database from Apache> but django always return apache.HTTP_UNAUTHORIZED.

At source C:\Python24\Lib\site-packages\django\contrib\auth\handlers\modpython.py,
modpython does not work on my pc box(winxp, apache 2.0, mod_python 3.3.1).
req.user always return null.

mod_python said req.get_basic_auth_pw() must called before using req.user.
My solution is, add

req.get_basic_auth_pw()

at line 30 before

kwargs = {'username': req.user, 'is_active': True}

This line of code was already added in r6305. Fix won't be backported to 0.96 since it isn't a security fix, but it's in the current SVN code.
