Description

I was trying to debug a problem with auth with cactus, and we discovered that the problem was that I had put 'plain' where I should have put 'basic' in the method (DUH) - however, this made me think:

"why didn't lighty bitch loudly that 'plain' is not a known or valid option for 'method'?"

so here's this ticket:

I think all values in the configuration file should be checked against what the system expects, and logged in the error log. It would solve virtually all of my problems.

If I understand what you're asking, unknown methods are bitched about in the errorlog:
