Some browsers are particularly strict about HTTP headers (Firefox more than
Chrome) so I'd search for a recipe sending or modifying HTTP headers, or for
a recipe/bug sending some content before PmWiki has sent all headers.
Core variables which modify HTTP headers include $EnableIMSCaching and
$EnableDirectDownload. Recipes which can modify headers include those
performing some caching and those sending cookies.
On my hosting plan I can enable "production" or "development" modes, the
latter adds HTTP headers preventing the caching of a page or file, so you
may also check this.
Other than that, apply the usual bug-hunting strategy: disable all
customizations (simply rename config.php and create a clean clear one) then
progressively add AuthUser, then all other recipes, and every time test the
wiki, until you come to a state where the bug appears.
