Deny/Allow in apache doesn't have anything to do with virtual hosts.  
There must be something else going on here.

I've remarked that the IncludeWikiPage script ought to be
rewritten to use ?action=source instead of attempting to read the
files directly.  Then one can use PmWiki's access control mechanisms
instead of trying to make Apache do it.

Also, unless IncludeWikiPage is modified to use ?action=source, 
the recipe *will* break when 2.0.0 is released, because the file naming 
conventions for files in wiki.d/ are going to change slightly.
