It's a known bug that has been mentioned a couple of times before. I'm
working on a fix using PHP sessions.
Which brings up a good topic -- if we're going to have to be using PHP
sessions anyway, is there any real reason to keep Basic HTTP
authentication as the default for PmWiki? There are enough systems
around that don't support HTTP authentication in PHP that it might be
worth defaulting to session-based authentication in the distribution
and leaving HTTP Basic authentication as a configurable option.
