You need an assembla account to update tickets, as an anonymous user you  
can only create them...

Thought that was so; so I'm going to change the bug to mention that  
CHECKMETHODS should have a default set (probably to nikto 2.02 - which is  
HEAD). This is a lesson for me: don't change the config file without  
providing warnings or a default.

Okay; that's interesting, I can have a look at that, but I'll need the  
results of a "-D d" to do that.
