Ah, yes.  Is that directory a subdirectory of wiki.d/ ?  If so,
then due to the way pagelist works it the page will still show
up in some pagelists even though the page is technically
deleted.  (This particular issue has been fixed in 2.2.0-beta15.)

Sure -- just change the (:searchresults:) directive 
(that normally appears on Site.Search) so that it reads

    (:searchresults list=normal:)

This will cause PmWiki to exclude infrastructure pages from
search results output.
