Here PmWiki is working the way it's designed to work.  If a page is 
protected with "@_site_edit", then someone needs the site edit 
password in order to read it (even if that someone knows the 
page's 'edit' password).

In other words, PmWiki doesn't consider that 'edit' 
permissions automatically bestow 'read' permissions.  If a page
has a read password of 'apple' and an edit password of 'banana',
then one still needs to know the read password in order to
view the page.  

One way to resolve this for now is to simply copy the edit passwords
into the read password field for the page.
