[pmwiki-users] Session Cookie Problem

I have a couple of Wikis using PmWiki (which is great, first off) and
I recently upgraded them both to version 2.1.7. One of the Wikis has
many view-protected pages, and since the upgrade an author has to
enter a password (it doesn't seem to matter if the password used is
the global admin password or that page's specific view password) to
view the page /every/ time they try to view the page. The other Wiki
has only a few view-protected pages so I can't test as thoroughly, but
it doesn't seem to be experiencing the problem.
Some additional things I've discovered in the course of investigating
the problem: If an author edits the pages (which are also
edit-protected), and enters the Wiki's global admin password, they no
longer need to enter a password to view the view-protected pages.
Secondly, I noticed that simply viewing a view-protected page doesn't
set the PHPSESSID cookie, but editing a page does.
Since this problem isn't happening on the other Wiki, my assumption
had been that something didn't get transferred to the remote system
correctly (The website provider I use only allows me FTP access to my
site), however I have re-uploaded the 2.1.7 files to no avail.
If anyone has any suggestions as to what might be wrong (for instance,
a particular file I can check to make sure it was transferred
correctly), I would greatly appreciate it.
