[BUG] Can't phantom new passworded channel as admin
If you are an admin user and attempt to place a phantom in a channel that has a password (or is deeper in the hierarchy than one that does), you can't do so unless you have previously entered the channels password, even if you are logged into the server as an admin user.

Conditions to replicate:
1) Log in to vent server as admin. Server Admin -> Log in...
2) Create a new channel with a password.
3) Attempt to leave a phantom in that channel.

Expected Result:
- Phantom is placed in channel.

Actual Result:
- Dialog box: "Unable to set Phantom. Reason = Not authenticated for specified channel."

1) Log out as admin user.
2) Enter passworded channel. Enter the channel password when asked.
3) [optional] Log in as admin user.
4) Add phantom to channel.

I'm not sure if this is specific to the Macintosh client or whether this is a server or multi-platform issue, but the Mac client is the only one I currently have access to.

LOgout as admin.
Authenticate with the channel.
Problem solved.

That's the workaround I posted, yes. ;)
It's rather counterintuitive that you don't need to authenticate with the channel to join the channel, but you do in order to phantom the channel. I would suggest that admins be allowed to phantom channels without specifically authenticating via the channel password. (This could potentially be very confusing if some other admin changes the channel password.)

Sorry, I didn't read the entire post. Thought you were looking for the workaround. (Tired).

This is fixed in the next release.

Good to hear. ;) I didn't see it in the list of known issues, though, so I figured it was worth a thread.

Get more sleep, I guess? :D
