I was able to reproduce this. Reporting upstream.

Comment 2 Susi Lehtola 2010-08-04 13:05:19 UTC
Looks like my problem was caused by having a newline character at the end of the password file, after all. htpasswd puts in a newline character at the end, so you're experiencing the same problem.

Create the password file with e.g.
 $ echo -n "user:pass" > passwd
and then it will work.
