This appeared yesterday. The anonymous user in this trac installation does only have

User       Action
anonymous  TICKET_CREATE
anonymous  TICKET_VIEW

I think in general the start page should not be considered part of the wiki to enable the display of the links the user is allowed to seem at least the login link.

Well, the subject is irritating. He actually can login if he adds /login to the url.
