I don't know if this is new to beta2, or whether you even consider it a bug, but
 adding a (:linebreaks:) directive on a page can have an impact on the SideBar
as well as the body of the page.

I was able to reproduce this on PmWiki.org at Test/LineBreaks (with changes at
Test/SideBar and Test/PageListTemplate).

1.  The test page simply contains a (:linebreaks:) directive
2.  The SideBar has a simple pageplist:
    (:pagelist list=normal fmt=#sidebargroup:)
3.  The relevant pagelist template format is:

    (:if equal {<$Group}:)
    (:if ! equal {<$Group} {=$Group}:)
    (:if equal {>$Group}:)

Note, I can alter the template to combine lines until, eventually, I get the
same results regardless of the linebreaks, but I wasn't sure that a linebreaks
directive in a page was supposed to be changing the behavior of the SideBar.
