I really don't know. I've seen HTTP auth problems if you don't close all 
the browser's windows, but why this would generate a "guest" login is 
beyond me. You can debug this since you have phpMyAdmin's source code, 
look in libraries/auth/httpd/http.auth.lib.php.

Sorry, I don't have more time to help you.

And please, next time, use the forums, or the "users" list. The "devel"
