[pmwiki-users] Wierd attachlist behaviour with groups with "X" in name

I've been working on my private story archive, and I've been making
various groups and uploading files, and I found something wierd going on
when I tried to use (:attachlist :) to list all the story files I'd
uploaded.  I discovered it when I made a pagelist template to list
all the attachments of all the matching groups, and certain groups'
attachments wouldn't be listed at all.

The symptoms are this:

If the group has an "X" in the name (such as Stories-XOver or
Stories-XFiles) then if you go


in that group it will list the attachments okay, but if you go

(:attachlist {$Group}.:)

then no attachments are listed at all.
Groups without X in the name are listed fine.

I poked around in uploads.php and as far as I can see, there's something
in the pagename stuff that makes it think, by the time that it's trying
to look in the directory, that the directory name isn't




(or something wierd like that).  Which of course doesn't exist, so it
can't find anything.

I ended up renaming all the troublesome groups; note that if I renamed
Stories-XFiles to Stories-X-Files the problem didn't occur.

This makes me wonder if there's something odd to do with formatting
hexadecimal numbers, but I don't know why it would want interpret
group names that way.

I was originally using version 2.1.11 for this, but when I upgraded to
2.1.19 the behaviour still occurred.
