[Moin-user] upgrade to 1.7.2 blocked, external cookie auth does not work

I am trying to upgrade from 1.5.x ri 1.7.2. Am using my own external
cookie authentication method. I did post this before but did not have
time to follow through. When user logs in authentication takes place,
login id is displayed but pagetrail only displays current page. I was
told this is a session failure. How do I debug this failure (which is
silent as far as I can tell)?

I did apply this patch which took care of some other errors I was seeing:
if lkey in ['vary','cache-control','content-language','set-cookie']:

Where is session code to look at? Any  hints as to where it might be
How best to debug?

Everything else seems to work but I have not gone too far beyond this..
I see this is apache error_log, but have no idea what it means

2008-12-01 10:41:51,628 WARNING MoinMoin.log:120 using logging
configuration read from built-in fa
llback in MoinMoin.log module!
2008-12-01 10:41:53,711 INFO MoinMoin.config.multiconfig:124 using wiki
config: /home/www/wiki2/co

Authentication login goes like this:

Check for auth cookie,

no cookie
   redirect to authentication service
   exit  ( how can this be done exactly?)
   take authentication server cookie with user information,
   establish user
   make local auth cookie
   apply cookie

cookie mechanism is working fine as far as I can tell, just wiki is damaged.

Any help would be appreciated. Is this the right forum for this?
