The swish-create.pl script also has a problem involving REMOTE_USER. It
assumes the browser sends REMOTE_USER field. I know my Netscape Comun.
4.x doesn't do that. One should add a snippet of code near the top of
that file that picks a default dummy userid if REMOTE_USER isn't
specified. If this is not done, autoswish will abort trying to create a
user specific directory for a ConfigFile.
BTW, although the docs mention that swish-e has compiled on Linix, it
didn't mention it running. Well, I can now confirm that it runs on
Linix. Pretty slick.
