Odd. On pmwiki.org, I get (http://www.pmwiki.org/wiki/Test/Definitions)
: :second definition
: :section definition
<dt> </dt><dd>second definition</dd>
<dt> </dt><dd>section definition</dd></dl>
I suspect there's a recipe or something on your site that is
somehow changing the definition list markup.
(I also thought that we had code in place that would prevent the
empty "<dt> </dt>" tags from appearing... but apparently I lost
that somewhere -- perhaps when the leading whitespace code was added.
I'll have to look into it a bit.)
