Just for the record (and this probably deserves a cookbook or
documentation page somewhere)...

In order to post an update to a page, the client (browser or script)
has to send at least the following fields:

    text=text to be posted

and if additional authorization is needed to write the page, 
also send


(PHP sessions that are already authorized for editing don't 
need to re-send the authpw and authid fields, but they do have to
send the session cookie.)
