from the vendor... (1) the security announcement was for older issues and
(2) the vendor can't reproduce the issues in the current stable version.

No, that announcement is quite old, it was around November 2003 and it
affects version prior to 2.6.4
I have updated the page to reflect this information.

The vulnerability you mention was unknown to me, but I'm trying to
reproduce it and I'm not managing. The post does not actually mention
versions and if I try this on the latest stable version (2.8.12 released
October 2004) I don't get any disclosures

eg (the demo site)

or the latest development version:

the fact that the page mentions username and password is fine, because
that is in "demo mode only".
