Try the following lines in your local/config.php file:

if (!isset($Author)) {
  if (isset($_POST['author'])) {
    $Author = htmlspecialchars(stripmagic($_POST['author']),ENT_QUOTES);
  } else {
    $Author = htmlspecialchars(stripmagic(@$_COOKIE['author_pm']),ENT_QUOTES);
  $Author = preg_replace('/(^[^[:alpha:]]+)|[^-\\w ]/','',$Author);

This changes PmWiki to use a cookie of 'author_pm' instead of
'author' for the author name.
