[Catalyst] Issue with Catalyst::Plugin::Authentication and updating user information (jayk, looking at you!)

Follow up for the list.

This turned out to be caused by a config problem.  id_field was set to
the username field... which meant that the session was attempting to
restore using the old username as the key.  Setting the id_field to
username is fine unless you change the username during the session, in
which case things get confused.  ;-)

Once id_field was removed from the config, it defaulted back to the
primary key of the table and the problems went away.
