I tested the recipe, it works fine on the latest PmWiki version 2.2.36.

There is a note on the AutoSave-Users page that the recipe has a function 
called $() which may be incompatible with other JavaScript libraries like 
jQuery and Prototype.

So, if you use another recipe with JavaScript, you may need to modify the 
Autosave *.js files to rename this function, or write to the developer.
