This happens on the last line of ResolvePageName() which is such an 
important function, with too many things and recipes depending on it, 
that I am unwilling to change it if it doesn't work as you would expect 
in your highly specific case (custom $DefaultName, custom $PagePathFmt, 
missing group homepage).

As usual with PmWiki, you can fix that specific case in config.php:

   if(preg_match("/^$GroupPattern$/", $pagename)) {
     $pagename = MakePageName("$DefaultGroup.$DefaultName",

This should be placed after you configure $GroupPattern, $DefaultGroup 
and $DefaultName, and after you include scripts/xlpage-utf-8.php where 
$GroupPattern is redefined.

No, it would do the same if you browsed to pmwiki.php?n=Foo
