 From what I can tell, $user->isLoggedIn returns the userid in the  
database, but
$_SESSION['wsUserID'] behaves as you describe, changing from 0 to 1  
and back when I log in or out.
Interestingly, it seems to not care if I'm viewing the wiki from  
different browsers, while MW itself recognizes them as different  
sessions.  I think I can live with that.

Now I just have to get the blog to be able to send a logout to both  
itself and the wiki, which I'm guessing I can do by overwriting
