Bug: Login as non-guest shown as Main.guest

Logging on as RichardDonkin or as other non-guest users, using TWikiAlphaRelease of 13 Sep 2003, I get the userid of the revision shown as Main.guest. This happened after upgrading from a much older alpha release (mid-summer).

Reverting to the TWiki.pm and TWiki/Plugins.pm from twiki-20030806alpha fixed this, so it's not my config or environment.

I think the work on the plugin initialisation is likely to have changed this - can't see anything else done recently that would affect this.

Test page is http://donkin.org/bin/view/Test/TestTopic5 and testenv is http://donkin.org/bin/testenv (currently reverted to 8 Aug 03 alpha as mentioned above).

Any ideas on this?

Test case

Create or edit any page, logging on as something other than TWikiGuest.

Thanks for the patch! I'll try this out - a bit busy right now, unfortunately.

Thanks Richard for spotting this and Stanislav for the patch. Don't know how I missed this in testing (I guess because I was focusing on using the SessionPlugin). Note commited to CVS.

Removed CairoRelease from ScheduledFor field since this applied temporarily to TWikiAlphaRelease 14 Sep 2003 (not to the previous production release)
