Synopsis: REMOTE_USER variable not set

State-Changed-From-To: open-closed
State-Changed-By: marc

I am quite sure that authentication is being required
wherever it is configured to be required.  If REMOTE_USER
isn't showing up, then it is because you don't have
authentication required for that request.  The fact that
it is a CGI executed from a form created by another
CGI has nothing to do with it.

Either your .htaccess file isn't working at all (eg. because
you have AllowOverride none or something similar set
for your cgi-bin directory) or you have some "Limit GET"
in there which, as it says, only limits GET requests.
