Ah, that's an entirely separate thing.  PmWiki is smart enough
to know that HTML only allows named anchors to appear once per
page, thus only the first one is ever rendered, and second and
subsequent anchors of the same name are automatically suppressed
(so that the output produced by PmWiki remains valid).

If you look at what gets generated for the Test.Stanchor page,
you'll see that the anchors there are also being generated 
inside of <p>...</p> tags.
