What is your user class name?  How did you define the class?  Can you 
try and add the following to your etc/config.yml:

       LoginUserClass: FQDN::User::Class

and see if the implicit class association is failing.

I can assure you that this is intended to work as you surmised.  I'm 
actually hoping to get back to this RSN, since what I want to do is 
associate the User class with a Person class (so all users will be 
persons but not all persons will be users).  I want to keep the 
demographic information in Person and the access rights in User, so I'll 
be adding fields and associations right and left...
