I had this problem.  Never diagnosed it, because a colleague came up
with a snippet that fixes it.   Mine wikis aren't in a wikifarm setup,
so I don't know how this would have to be adapted, but what I have is
(in this order):

	//Require author name - http://www.pmwiki.org/wiki/Cookbook/RequireAuthor
	$EnablePostAuthorRequired = 1;

	//Author cookie
	if($AuthId && !@$_COOKIE[$AuthorCookie]) {
	$Author = $AuthId; setcookie($AuthorCookie,
    $Author, $AuthorCookieExpires, $AuthorCookieDir); }

which works to preserve author id from one edit to the next.
