Mediawiki upgraded: Login Failed in Many Bot scripts

June Hyeon Bae
Wikimedia Mediawiki version is upgraded to 1.16wmf3 from 1.16alpha-wmf. Diff is http://svn.wikimedia.org/viewvc/mediawiki/branches/wmf/1.16wmf3/includes/specials/SpecialUserlogin.php?r1=56438&r2=64679&pathrev=64688  r64679 by tstarling.
So, Login Failed in Many Bot scripts include Pywikipediabot, API.php, CommonsDelinker, DotNetWikiBot, AWB (I think).
How can we fix it?

Make a second request with the proper token as returned in the first request.

There are two bots that I know are updated; here are their fixes,
which may help put other bot developers on the right track. If you're
using one of these, you only need to update to the latest version.

Pywikipedia: http://svn.wikimedia.org/viewvc/pywikipedia/trunk/pywikipedia/login.py?r1=8061&r2=8055
Stewbot: http://github.com/Pathoschild/stewbot/commit/6b16f7cacacf7a51e7b623b5b4ef788e87319850

Yours cordially,
