Are you using old style authentication?

I.e. Do you have 'Authentication::Credential::Password' in the plugin  
list for MyApp?

As if you are, this is a known bug, which we are planning to fix (but  
also quite a hard one, so nobody has got to it yet - volunteers  
welcome, there is a minimal test case for it).

If you are not using the authentication backwards compatibility  
stuff, then authentication should work just fine (although I can't  
remember off-hand if all of this was fixed in _04, or is just fixed  
in trunk - it'll be time for a new dev release as soon as someone  
squashes the auth back-compat bug).

If you're not using the backwards compatibility auth code, then could  
you try the latest 5.80 trunk and confirm it works (or not)?

Thank you for testing!
