It's probably a server misconfiguration caused by a patchwork bug (ie, 
this isn't documented that well). If you're using the FastCGI interface 
to Apache, you'll need to specify that you want the Authentication 
header to be passed through to the patchwork app:

FastCGIExternalServer <path> -socket <socket> -pass-header Authorization

If you're not using FastCGI, there may be something similar that you 
need to for mod_python; let me know if this is the case.

Hope this helps,
