[Catalyst] Patch for Catalyst::Authentication::Store::DBIx::Class::User

Hi David,

Thanks for the patch, but I think you are misunderstanding the use of

The id_field config option is only used when saving to / restoring
from the session, it has no relation to what you pass to the $c-
 >authenticate() call.  By default,
Catalyst::Authentication::Store::DBIx::Class uses the primary key of
the user table.  You only need to specify id_field if the primary key
for the table is multi-column.

Your $c->authenticate({ ... } ) call should contain the fields you
want to query on.  So if your username field is 'user' then you want
to call:

$c->authenticate({ user => $c->req->params->{'login'}, ... });

Generally speaking, the parameters you pass in to authenticate when
using the DBIx::Class store are the same field names you would use in
a call to $resultset->search({ ... });

Hope that helps!
