Author Changed when Posting From Desktop App

Description

I have a multi-author blog at http://thesandtrap.com/ and, since updating to WordPress 2.2, when I edit and post another author's column from my desktop applications (ecto or MarsEdit), the author is changed to me instead of the original author. I must use the wp-admin interface to re-set the author to the correct author. If I edit and save within wp-admin, the author is not changed.

Permission levels are: me - Administrator. Authors - author.

This worked correctly in all previous 2.x versions.

Line 1153 of "xmlrpc.php" should apparently be changed to:

$post_author = $postdatapost_author?;

#3 @iacas

errr....
$post_author = $postdata{"post_author"};
With square brackets instead of curly. An admin can feel free to correct this. Sorry. Should have previewed first.

I've confirmed that this is the correct fix. The patch I uploaded makes this change.

Daniel Jalkut deserves the same if not more credit than I for both this and #4314. He, Joseph Scott, and I tested and confirmed on IRC. I was just the first to file the bugs, and thus wanted to note the fixes quickly so anyone finding the bug via my blog would be sure to see the fix.
