That "issir03" was just a typo, for I made up a bogus account name and
password as I went along. 

I now start a $ emacs -Q session and:

        C-x C-f /

There is a brief flashed message:

  ~/.netrc either not owned by you or badly protected.

  I suppose this is normal because ~/.netrc is by nature not protected
  at all. I check /etc/group and see I'm a member of the ssh group, but
  not the daemon or ssl-cert groups. 

Then comes a password prompt I suppose because the password from .netrc
was not sent to the web server:

  Password for

  There is nothing in *Messages" buffer.

I remake the stanza in ~/.netrc in both column and in line format by
pasting the account name and password directly from the webserver
interface. Here is its format:

          login Benutzer
          password Geheim

If at the Password prompt I copy/paste the password from this stanza,
login is successful.

I try all the above on another machine and had same results. 

With a $ emacs -Q session I try:

  M-x customize-variable RET
  Customize variable: auth-source-debug [No  match]
