it looks like oauth now needs the verification token from the callback
/ printed on the website when a token is authorised for OAuth 1.0a
support [1].

i've updated the example at
http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/OAuth/Examples to reflect this and
it now works for me. hopefully it'll work for you too.
