Authenticator doesn't work with Confluence 4.1 or later

You get the following exception when logging in using the authenticator in Confluence 4.1 and later:

{{{ 2012-09-06 14:20:02,188 ERROR [http-8080-1] [[Catalina].[localhost].[/wiki].[action]] log Servlet.service() for servlet action threw exception java.lang.ClassCastException: com.atlassian.confluence.user.SessionSafePrincipal cannot be cast to com.atlassian.user.User at com.atlassian.confluence.user.AuthenticatedUserThreadLocal.getUser(AuthenticatedUserThreadLocal.java:25) at com.atlassian.confluence.util.UserThreadLocalFilter.doFilter(UserThreadLocalFilter.java:36) ... }}}

This is due to a change in how Confluence stores users in the session, but requires a change in the authenticator to work properly.
