It could be cached a number of places -- I once had an ISP
that would cache pages (and ignore the 'no-cache' option
in requests), which made things very hard to troubleshoot.  

That said, I usually use Shift+Reload in my browser (Firefox 3)
to force a re-fetch from the server.

Also, I've checked the file timestamps at pmwiki.org, and it
appears that the correct file is in the uploads directory
and is available for downloading.  You can check
at http://pmwiki.org/pmwiki/uploads/Cookbook/ .
