Subject: Unable to add user 
Hi,

we're using elog to handle various logbooks. It's a great tool by the way. 
While replacing the Win32 2.7.8 Release with Release 3.1.4-2, we ran into the 
following problem.

Since elog is for internal usage only, we allow users to self-register if they 
are new. Therefore  "Self register = 1" is set in the [global]-area.

Using the Win32-Release of elog, it worked fine while using Release 2.7.8 or 
2.8.0. Starting with Release 3.x everytime you try do add a user, the following 
error occurs:

      Error: Command "config" is not allowed for user ""

No matter if the user self-registers or is added by an elog-admin-user. We 
tried various 3.x Releases from 3.1.0-1 up to the latest 3.1.4-2. 
The error-message remains the same. Curious, although an error-message occurs, 
the user is added and able to use all logbooks. We also ran elogd in 
Debug-Mode (-v3), but the output didn't give a clue.

By the way using the same configuration on a linux-based installation (Debian 
and RaspiOS) self-registration works smooth. No error-message occurs.

So what could be the problem? Any suggestion is greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance.
