The documentation is wrong there; none of $Group, $PageName, and
$FullName are variables in the normal sense. They're only available
through FmtPageName(). And $PageName was deprecated long ago in favor of

No, there must be something else happening there -- by the
time a local/group.page.php file is loaded, PmWiki must have already set
$pagename to a non-empty page name, even if it's only the default page.
Otherwise it wouldn't have found the group.page.php file.
Are you sure $pagename was empty...?
