Well, cgi.fix_pathinfo seems to have no effect whatsoever on the 
problem, so I tried PM's suggestion. It, however, breaks PmWiki in a new 
and interesting way. Now all internal URLs take me to this page:


Where I am informed by Firefox that there is an infinite redirection 
loop from the server.

I guess for now I will give up on the idea of running PHP via FastCGI.
