It sounds like a misconfiguration of Apache. Is is possible that the
method that you are using to provide clean URLs for the main pmwiki site
is somehow also matching on URLs for the test site? That might well do it.
If the the string 'pmwiki' is being matched in the wrong context, that
might explain your results.
