Affects Version/s: 1.1.1
Fix Version/s: 1.2
From the report at the users mailing list:
Seems like after updating the password in a user doc, the user is not able to login with the new password unless Couch is restarted. Sounds like a caching issue.
The only case of getting the cache consistent with the _users database content is if the _users database processes crash and after the crash user documents are updated. The cache daemon is ignoring the database crash.
The following patch updates the daemon to monitor the _users database and crash (letting the supervisor restart it) if the database process crashes.
Etap test included.
This might be related to COUCHDB-1212.
