Sure enough, that works, and as Patrick mentioned off list, my Rewrite
rule only works with URLs without dotts, so the ReWriteCond didn't
matter, unless of course, you never need to pass anything to PmWiki.
So it appeared to be working to me. However, I just realized I had a
typo in the RewriteCond on my test box casing it to be ignored (that
box is not connected so I couldn't just cut and past therefore the
typo didn't show in my previous emails). Once I fixed the typo and
used Patrick's RewriteRule, it all seems to work. Now if others could
test it too, that would be great.
