It's a well-known IE misbehaviour. Depending on exact version, file 
size, and phase of the moon, it will sometimes decide to ignore the 
headers that the server sent and infer what to do based on the extension.

You can get rid of this by eliminating the .php extension from the URL.

The easiest way is to switch on content negotiation (say "Options 
+MultiViews" in .htaccess). That way, a URL like .../pmwiki will be 
mapped to pmwiki.php by the server (just make sure you don't have a 
pmwiki.html, pmwiki.gif, or any other pmwiki.* in that directory).

The second-easiest way is to adopt some form of CleanUrls.
