If the Main web (or USERSWEB in general) is write-protected, new user registrations fail because TWikiRegistrationAgent
does not have ALLOWWEBCHANGE privileges in Main.
Unless it breaks something, TWikiRegistrationAgent
should be added to Main's ALLOWWEBCHANGE by default, in case new installers write-protect their Main. At the very least, a note or comment should be placed above the area where you set the access-control variables in Main . WebPreferences
Marking urgent per Lavr, so that this gets seen.

I opened Item6223
