As one would expect with Plain Old Spring Beans (POSB ;-0), namespaced elements can not be overridden. I don't know if that's intentional, but poor user (like me) is taken by surprise to see it not working.

I've replace the assertion with a warning when the global AuthenticationManager is overwritten. Note that the changes in SEC-1847 may also be of interest.
