after installing (and running bin/check_perms, setting up crontab etc ) 
2.0.r1 I still get consistent
"Authentication failed " from all admin pages (with site or admin 
Since there're hardly any doc or log files, I checked the C-wrapper and 
found cgi.py :

    # Logging support
    # ===============

    logfile = "" # Filename to log to, if not empty
    logfp = None

which didn't write a byte, although it seems to be called.
Any hints how to debug this beast are GREATLY appreciated.
