I found that in INN 2.3:

        if (innconf->nnrpperlauth) {
                /* save these values in case you need them later */
                strcpy(PERMuser, User);
                strcpy(PERMpass, Password);

after a successful match.  The same thing is done for Python.

But the fact is that the same code will be executed so Perl/Python will
answer again (like what happens for AUTHINFO GENERIC).

Nothing more in INN 2.0 and even 1.5.1; well, still a mystery!

Never mind.
