In the authenticate method of the AuthenticationManagerDelegator inner class, it is attempted to get a bean of class
In the Eclipse Virgo container when the AuthenticationManager is referenced as a service, the ProviderManager will be wrapped inside a Proxy class and the following Exception will be thrown:

Failed to call secure method org.springframework.beans.factory.BeanNotOfRequiredTypeException: Bean named 'authenticationManager' must be of type [], but was actually of type [$Proxy94]

The bean should be looked up by the interface.
The following change works properly for the described scenario.
Original code (at line 386):
try {
delegate = beanFactory.getBean(authMgrBean, ProviderManager.class);
} catch (NoSuchBeanDefinitionException e) {

Changed to:
try {
delegate = beanFactory.getBean(authMgrBean, AuthenticationManager.class);
} catch (NoSuchBeanDefinitionException e) {
