Apparently PmWiki's internal ParseArgs() function does strange things
with values of the form "name=" where there's no value immediately
following, and that's causing no pages to display.  I'll have to see
about a fix.

In the meantime, if you're wanting to display pages from all groups
except the PmWiki group, the correct syntax will eventually be

    (:pagelist group=-PmWiki:)

but that's not implemented yet.  You might also look at
http://www.pmwiki.org/wiki/Cookbook/SearchPatterns and see if
it can give you what you want.
