That was definitely part of it: some links to images were hard-coded
into a page.  Fixing those links alleviated the need to login just to
view, which is good.

I think this was due to my bad syntax; now I have:
<LocationMatch "^/testtwiki/bin/.*/*">
  AuthType WebAuth
  allow from all
  require valid-user
  satisfy all

<Location ~ "/testtwiki/bin/view/*">
  satisfy any

Now I'm asked to log in before editing, which is also good... the
problem is even after logging in and confirming with WebAuth, I'm now
getting "authentication required" errors from the application.  So I
think (hope) the syntax above is proper, and that the problem is now
only on the application end.

Thank you,
