I'm using the latest identica-mode from the Savannah git repo (i.e., M-x identica-mode-version says 1.2.1) under Emacs 23.3.1 on OpenBSD 5.0. I am using plain authentication, not OAuth. In ~/.authinfo, I have

machine login myloginname password mypassword

M-x identica-mode works, but asks for my login and password every time. As Gnus works fine with my ~/.authinfo, it appears that identica-mode isn't reading it.

Am I doing something wrong?
