This is a known (mis)feature; the (:title:) directive from
included pages can inadvertently override or become a title for
the page that includes it.  Some people have indicated that they
want to be able to specify (:title:) in includes, and even if this
weren't the case I'm not sure that I know of a reliable workaround
for the behavior, short of hardcoding something directly into pmwiki.php.
