[Moin-user] Subscriptions semi-lost after 1.2->1.5 upgrade

Its probably related to 1.5 using interwiki page names e.g  
WikiName:PageName. This let you use the same preferences for all wikis  
in one farm, but of course just make one wiki farms life harder.

Check the user file after you save the preferences, I guess you will  
find your wiki name in front of all subscribe page names.

I guess that inserting the wikiname to all user files will solve the  
problem, this probably should be part of the upgrade process.
