Duh!  I didn't even think to check there.  Here are two examples, the
sieveshell that fails followed by a smartsieve login that worked.  In
bothe cases I logged in (or tried to login in) as the same user.  The
one difference I note is that the failed login does not list the user
name while the successful login does.  Is that significant?
