On 9 May, I asked whether she had a resolution; her reply: "it's
something in the config.php file.  I ended up downloading a fresh copy
of pmwiki and rebuilding from the sampleconfig.php.  I'm still not
sure what the trigger is, but that fixed it. "

I asked because some friends were having the same symptoms.  In our
case, the problem turned out to be in the .htaccess file. We replaced
whatever they were using (wherever they got it from) with the
distribution version, tweaking it to recognize that the root of the
installation was in a directory named 'wiki' - in other words,
changing 'index.php' to 'wiki/index.php'.

I think it helped to enable clean URLs, too.
