Comment (by _ck_):

 What is really strange is that for a user/author with no posts:

 works and will show author.php template even with zero posts

 will FAIL (even in 2.1a2) and show 404 template
 until they have at least one post and then it will work

 I believe it has to do with the way WP_QUERY in query.php parses the URL
 and first believes it's on a page with posts for the rewrite URL so it
 fails for the author. Very strange.

 The 404 patch code by  joelgilmore works but I dislike the idea of
 patching the result. I wish they could fix it on the parsing. 2.1a2 still
 does not have any attempt to fix what-so-ever.
