Oh.  You're running pmwiki-2.0.beta26.  The ability to access attachments
on other pages wasn't introduced until 2.0.beta28.

If you want to stay with 2.0.beta26, you'll probably want to define
an InterMap shortcut for getting to the Main group's attachments.
Otherwise, you might want to see about upgrading to the latest version.

PmWiki doesn't have any capability to create two different files
under the same name, no.  It just uses the plain filesystem.  I 
don't know what would be causing this one, but I don't think it's
a PmWiki bug.
