Oops. Sorry - Documents.RecentChanges

Yes, albeit as "Documents.ConversionTools?"

By replacing the contents of the page with the word "delete".
Um, actually, no. Belay that. That's how I deleted it in one of the
three versions of the site - the one that's not having this problem. In
the other two, the file seems to have been deleted by using mv to put it
in the directory we keep the time-stamped deleted pages in. I moved it
back and deleted it 'properly' and it's no longer appearing in the
searches. It is, of course, now back in the RecentChanges page....

No problem. Thinking through what's happening has helped me sort out
what was going on. On the other hand, I've now been asked if there's a
way we can stop "infrastructure" pages like Documents.GroupAttributes
showing up in the search or recently changed lists (All the other groups
like Main, Site, and PmWiki are hidden from the ordinary users because
they're not logged in)....
