Wsdl calls fail under certain circumstances when the user engine is in
use. After much experimentation, this is what I found.

* I have an application that uses the login and user engines for
permissions and security. The configuration works correctly.
* I created a web service for the application. If I use direct dispatch
(the default), I can both invoke the service and call service.wsdl and
get the expected results.
* If I modify the web service to use layered or delegated dispatching, I
can still invoke the service, but the service.wsdl call fails with
"method not found"
* If I then comment out the line "include UserEngine" in the
application.rb, the wsdl call works again.

It *seems* to me that something in the user engine is overriding the
wsdl call or masking it in some way. I am going to continue to
investigate this, but any help would be greatly appreciated.
