I guess it's because both wikis are installed on the same domain? So the 
DOKU_AUTH cookie is shared between the installations.

There are multiple ways of fixing this.

You could make sure both installations use the same passwords and cookiesalts 
(eg. using symlinks)

You could move them to different (virtual) domains.

DokuWiki could add the title into the cookiename (like done in the session 

Dokuwiki could restrict the cookie to it's path (eg. /dokuwiki).

I guess the last method would be the correct way to handle this. Could you file 
a feature request?
