Admin pages authentication fails when running Local Library server (but not when running Apache web server). It doesn't recognise admin username and the password selected upon installation.

Dr Bainbridge fixed this. The fix was in recpt\w32server\cgiwrapper.cpp

The Local Library server's cgiwrapper.cpp (in src\recpt\w32server) was calling the userdbclass() and keydbclass() constructors in userdb.cpp with the paths to the usersdb and keydb files, when cgiwrapper.cpp should have passed them gsdlhome instead (since the dbclass constructors work out the the paths to the 2 db files themselves, using the expected gsdlhome).
