[pmwiki-users] Authentication timeout

I've been using PMWiki for a few years, though I'm far from an expert in
it.  I use it for coordinating some user groups and non-profit orgs.

I just upgraded my server from Ubuntu 9.10 to 10.04LTS.  Everything
seems to be pretty much working, but I'm finding for pages with
passwords in PMWiki, I have to enter the password each time.  The
authentication doesn't last even for seconds.  I have tried multiple
browsers and multiple client OSes and machines to ensure this is not a
client-side issue.

I've scanned the list and here's the relevant settings that might be
affecting it in /etc/php5/apache2/php.ini:

session.cache_expire = 180
session.gc_divisor = 1000
session.gc_maxlifetime = 1440

Obviously a lot changed when I upgraded, so I'm not positive whether the
problem is with PHP, PMWiki, or Apache.  I can say that HTTP auth works
as usual for other things I have on the same server.

What can I look at next?
