Sigh. If you found my language abrupt then I apologise for that. (After
doing this for a while I have found that my writing tends to get briefer.
This is intended to be succinct not rude.)

I was saying that the difference you observed with "DenyUsers *" in the
existing code should be fixed, which would remove the need for additional
config options. I was unable to reproduce the behaviour you described and
asked for additional information so that I could determine why it behaves
that way so that we can fix it.

So, would you please provide the server-side debug traces so that we can
figure out the cause of the descrepancies you noted so that we can fix them?

Good judgement comes with experience. Unfortunately, the experience
usually comes from bad judgement.
