At one time, all unknown logins were mapped to "anonymous."  Later, to
facilitate allowing login by callsign, "anonymous" because a user in its own
right who could be locked out, and all unknown logins were mapped to
"univperm." Since you don't know how old the code is that you are using, this
might be the problem.  I think the change occurred around 1990-1991.
