False assumptions with MySQLPosted by cafuego on Friday 19 June 2009.
I spent far too much time this past week trying to find out why a Drupal was not assigning authenticated user permissions to users who clicked on the validation link they were emailed. Instead, it would simply remove the temporary unverified user permission.
It's supposed to do the latter, but then also follow it up with the former. It turns out the problem was a Drupal bug that was triggered by my MySQL setup.
