Hello. PmWiki tries to figure out the "page name" before the slash.
The first should always link to a file in a group [[A/]]. The second markup
will try to link to a file in the current group if there is such a page named
[[A]] in the current group, otherwise to a group [[A/]]. So it may work
But the second doesn't always work if you have both another group A and a page
A in the current group -- it doesn't notice the file in the current group. The
code probably needs a review and a fix when we agree on how it should behave.
That's why at the time we just documented what we expect to always work, and
with a dot, we always mean the group A, and not a page A in the current group.
