[pmwiki-users] fix for bug in userauth recipe for pmwiki

I found a bug in the userauth recipe for pmwiki. Everything worked until I
tried to password protect a page. I would enter my password but it kept
returning the password prompt to me, never accepting my password.
The problem is in userauth.php in the CheckPmWikiPassword function, there is
a line that reads:
$_POST['authpw'] = $page_passwd;
It looks like the author was trying to pass the page password to the
PmWikiAuth function in pmwiki.php. This won't work in some environments
(namely php safe mode, which I'm running). I fixed it by changing all
references of "wiki_pw" to "authpw" in userauth.php and removed the line
above from the CheckPmWikiPassword function and all was well.
This one kept me busy for a few hours! :)
