These errors look like they are issues with the PHP configuration and not
PmWiki's passwording system, especially since they involve PHP
sessions.  I suspect you're correct that the upload problem is also
related to the PmWikiDraw problem you're experiencing.  

My suggestion is for us to see if we can get uploads
working first, and then resolve any issues with PmWikiDraw.

Are you using PmWiki v2.0?  If so, can you try using HTTP Basic
authentication instead of the default session authentication?
(Just add include_once('scripts/httpauth.php'); to your config.php.)

If that doesn't solve the problem, is the site publicly accessible
so that I could check out the PHP configuration?  I'm really interested
to know what is causing this problem.
