Is there another Alias or Redirect directive somewhere that
might be doing things before the URL rewriting is able to
take place?  When I request the page directly, the response
I get back from the server is

    HTTP/1.1 302 Found
    Date: Thu, 04 May 2006 18:23:21 GMT
    Server: Apache/1.3.33 (Unix) FrontPage/ ApacheJServ/1.1.2 mod_auth_pam/1.1.1
    Location: http://0068952.netsolhost.com/index.php?n=Profiles/PhillipDuncan
    Transfer-Encoding: chunked
    Content-Type: text/html; charset=iso-8859-1
    <TITLE>302 Found</TITLE>
    The document has moved <A HREF="http://0068952.netsolhost.com/index.php?n=Profiles/PhillipDuncan">here</A>.<P>

which seems to indicate that something in Apache is doing the
redirect before PmWiki is ever run.  (PmWiki's redirect messages
look different from the above, which is how I know that Apache
is doing it.)
