Assuming your .htaccess is unmodified from the previous, the
non-working is probably due to this:

# Send requests to pmwiki.php, appending the query string part.
RewriteRule ^([A-Z0-9\xa0-\xff].*)$ pmwiki.php?n=$1 [QSA,L]

You're explicitly excluding strings that start with a lower case
character from being processed by PmWiki, and hence eg. "group/Page"
looks like it doesn't work, whereas "Group/page" does work. For a fix,
see the part on "ErrorDocument integration" at
