Maybe somebody else will see an obvious problem.  For now I would
suggest sprinkling some "echo" statements around before and after that
statement, as I've done below, and then just see if things are
happening as you expect.  Usually a few debug tracing statements like
this shed a lot of light on an otherwise confusing situation...

     echo "Checking for 'id:*' in '$rpw'<br>\n";
     if (strstr($rpw, 'id:*')) {
         echo "Yep, found 'id:*'.  Before SDV
         SDV($InputTags['e_private']['checked'], 'checked');
         echo "After SDV
     } else echo "Nope, no 'id:*'<br>\n";
