Note that $EnablePathInfo = 0; has nothing to do with redirects.
All it does is change the urls that PmWiki generates
(and for forms it doesn't even do that).  The redirect problem
would be on the webserver configuration side.

Are you still setting $DefaultPasswords with...?

    $DefaultPasswords['admin'] = crypt('123456');
    $DefaultPasswords['edit'] = crypt('123456');
    $DefaultPasswords['attr'] = crypt('123456');

If so, the above setting looks quite suspicious to me --
each of the $DefaultPasswords entries should've gotten a
different value.

I still don't have a good answer to the problem  -- I need
to see if I can come up with more things to investigate.
