That reminds me of an annoyance.

Let's say I've just enabled uploads and attempts to upload something.  
Pmwiki then (usually) tells you to for instance do 'chmod 2777 <somedir>'
and then when that is done return the settings using 'chmod 775 <somedir>'

The bad thing is that I often do reload to see that 'chmod 2777...' 
worked, which mean I loose the page saying how to return the settings...

Maybe pmwiki could write the suggested commands to a logfile, or a special
wiki page? 

I hope I managed to explain what's annoying.
