I'm seeing something like this:
|(:pagelist fmt=#showthumbs group=Test name=EasyGalleryPic* "Thumbnail:" :) |
| [_______________________________]                                         |  

Where "[____]" is the div that is supposed to contain thumbnails.  No 
thumbnails appear in that div when I view it on Test/PData.  The content 
of that div should look like the div that appears on Test/EasyGallery.  

Note, a second issue is the way that the thumbnail links work.  On
http://pmwiki.org/wiki/Test/EasyGallery#thumbpagelist when you click on a
thumbnail link it takes you to the image page.  By contrast, on Test/PData 
(at http://pmwiki.org/wiki/Test/PData#thumbnailink), when you click on 
the second thumbnail (which does *not* use a pagelist) that link reposts 
the same page (Test/PData), rather than the underlying image page
(http://pmwiki.org/wiki/Test/EasyGalleryPic1) that contains the link markup
("Thumbnailink: %thumb%[[{$FullName}|Attach:HaleyDog.jpg"{$Title}"]]%%").
But perhaps that behavior would change if I got the thumbnails working 
with pagelist (because the links are using a {$FullName} page variable 
located in the image page).

Right.  But I am using Test/PData, so that shouldn't be a problem (unless I
misunderstood your point).
