What *is* in the farmconfig.php?
If it's calling authuser.php, or if it or any scripts it calls
makes any calls to ResolvePageName(), then the values of
$DefaultPage and the pagename are being set before your field's
local/config.php has a chance to change them.
I can get you a configuration that will work; but need more
details about what's happening in the farmconfig.php in order
to do that.
P.S.: For those who may be thinking "why can't PmWiki figure this
out on its own", I'll just say that managing dependencies between
configuration scripts is a very difficult problem in general,
so there are a few things that PmWiki leaves to the wiki administrator
to figure out. Getting the correct value of $pagename is one
of them. :-(
