Ummmm, yes it is.  The pattern says "all pages that are not
in the PmWiki or Site groups", and since 'Forum.Test1' isn't
in either of those groups, it matches the pattern.

So MatchPageNames() is correctly returning 1 in this case,
since exactly one page from the list ('Forum.Test1')
matches the pattern '-PmWiki.*,-Site.*'.
