5 - 6 weeks later, I figured out the issue.  And it's all me.  And it's 
entirely stupid.

To recap: browser here at work is set to clear cache / cookies on 
close.  I close the browser every day.  In the mornings, I appear to 
have to log in to my wiki twice.  Was wondering if there was a config 
thing I missed, maybe something authuser, etc.  Turns out, pmwiki and 
configs are all fine.

My bookmark / link was to http://site.com/wiki  - config.php site url is 
set to http://www.site.com/wiki

Update my bookmark / link to include the www, and viola all is happy.

My mistake.  Am doing this reply just for completionist's sake / 
fulfilling the documentation / maybe help someone searching archives 
down the road.
