Can you send your .htaccess file?  Sometimes small typos in this file
cause very odd results.

I'm going to guess that you've got

    RewriteEngine on
    RewriteRule ^([A-Z].*) /pmwiki/pmwiki.php?n=$1 [L,qsappend]
    RewriteRule ^$ /pmwiki/pmwiki.php [L,qsappend]

and it should probably be

    RewriteEngine on
    RewriteRule ^([A-Z].*) /~me/pmwiki/pmwiki.php?n=$1 [L,qsappend]
    RewriteRule ^$ /~me/pmwiki/pmwiki.php [L,qsappend]

The instructions on CleanUrls isn't clear about this -- if this solves
your problem I'll fix the instructions.
