It's always the same mistake... *sigh*

By the time rule translation reaches:

> Protect /local/Web/protect/* SECRET

you haven't yet mapped virtual URLs to the physical filesystem.
E.g. you have something like this:

Protect /local/Web/protect/* SECRET
Pass /* /local/Web/*

What you *should* have is either:

Protect /protect/* SECRET
Pass /* /local/Web/*


Map /* /local/Web/*
Protect /local/Web/protect/* SECRET
Pass /*

(or the last line can read also:

Pass /local/Web/*

but all that ever reaches it is already of form /local/Web/* so /* is
just fine, too.)
