Correct. Colons are not allowed in page names, and it assumes that this is  
not a link to a page in the trail, for example an InterMap link.

  * [[1960 to Rob on his 46th birthday|+]]

If it is desirable to change the default "spacing" way, PmWiki can use a  
different function to space the page names:

  $AsSpacedFunction = "MyOwnAsSpaced"; # use MyOwnAsSpaced() to space names

Or, simply set the page title in a (:title ...:) directive instead.
