    Title says most of it. Also some better error messages upon failed logins and fixed a hole so that only external db users can authenticate - existing accounts on WP are not used at all except for WP-related roles and personal details which get synced with the external database.

    you may want to check to make sure you're filling in the configuration fields properly. The first username's for accessing the database with the information, and the second username's for matching a field in a table in the database for authenticating. Root's a possible login for database access if you're running your own setup, but doesn't sound like a likely field for the username field in the table.
