Nothing is wrong. Your browser holds the password in a cookie so you
don't need to enter it over and over.
PmWiki has a "logout" action you can use to destroy the session. If
you browse a page with ?action=logout in the query string you will
subsequently need to re-enter the password the next time you attempt
to edit an edit-protected page.
The logout action also clears the cookie that holds your author name,
so you will typically need to re-enter that too.
