Depends on what you mean by "variables being flushed out", and how
phpSecurePages is storing its variables. If it's using PHP sessions, then
there shouldn't be any real problem--you just have to restart the
same session in pmwiki.php to get access to the variables (via
the $_SESSION variable).
If you're expecting the variables to show up as globals (i.e.,
"register_globals = on"), then for security reasons PmWiki explicitly
disables such variables by default. Just look them up in $_SESSION
(or, if you're really desperate, reimport them back into the global
