This is a general behavior of the (:include:) markup:
When you are on a page which is included with the markup, it does not
include itself. This makes some sense because otherwise the page would
mirror itself infinitely. Unfortunately it does apply in the use of
the markup in the sidebar as well.

I once created a group SideBar which consisted of an
(:include {$Group}.{$Group}:)
and Group.Group was the group's index page listing the pages in the
group. This worked fine, but going to the index page meant suddenly
having an empty sidebar! The page content was there, but not mirrored
in the sidebar. This was a bit startling I thought, so I did not use

It would be nice if the page can still be included in itself on a
different division of itself, like the sidebar or a rightbar.
