Please implement a hook to authenticate local users - similar to what
hook_auth does for remote users. Alternatively, extend hook_auth to
authenticate both local and remote users.

Current behaviour:
-  If a user logs in with "user at domain", hook_auth gets activated;
-  If a user logs in with "user", hook_auth is bypassed.

I just tried hook_user(login), but it only fires when a valid drupal
userid/password is entered.

I found the reason why hook_auth only works for remote users. Look at
this code from users.module:

 // Try each external authentication source in series. Register user
  // successful.
  else if (!$user->uid && $server) {

Is this something that should be fixed, or should I just comment out
the the "&& $server" part myself?
