I noticed that too. I meant to write it up but wasn't sure what was 
happening in the background. So I don't know if it's me or a bug

This happens only when creating a wiki or a wiki field. I figured out 
that there is an instance where the SideBar link reads Site.Sidebar and 
the url reads Site.SideBar but pmWiki is really displaying Main.Sidebar. 
I changed the url to Main.Sidebar?action=edit and copied in the same 
settings as Site.Sidebar and everything "works".
I know that's not the real fix but it works for me until I figure out 
more. I currently use pmWiki2.0beta54

To get the problem to display
1) Create a new wiki site
2) Edit Site.SideBar and copy the contents to your clip-board.
3) Create a link and go to it. Enter some text and save it.
4) Notice that the Site.SideBar now reads different that what you just 
created when you were at Main.HomePage. Paste your clipboard contents in 
the Site.SideBar.
5) Go back to Main.HomePage and make another change to the Site.SideBar
6) Go back to the link you created previously. Your Site.SideBar changes 
are displayed
7) Again go back to Main.HomePage. The Site.SideBar changes have disappeared
8) That's because at Main.HomePage you're really displaying Main.SiteBar 
and not Site.Sitebar which is what the url reads.
