The recently added new function allowing administrators to impersonate other users is a really useful tool - thank you very much.
It works great on our development server. Unfortunately, it does not work on our production server which relies on external authentication via Apache. Is this a common problem? See below for the output in the logs, when I tried to switch from 'email@example.com' to 'Tim.Roloff@fmi.ch'.
Has anybody else activated this functionality (with or without success)?
