I figured out why this is happening.  Apparently, MoinAuth is hard- 
coded into the newaccount and recoverpass pages.  Is there a reason  
for this, or is this a bug?

BTW, I have yet to receive a response to any message I have sent to  
this list.  Is this list active?  Is there a better place to go to get  
help with MoinMoin?
