In this case, instead of just adding ?action=crypt to the pmwiki url, 
add it to the end of a page, as in

The problem isn't with crypt.php, the problem is that the correct
syntax would have to be (note the slash after "pmwiki"):

Since http://www.mysite.com/pmwiki is a directory, Apache sends
back a redirect request to the browser telling it to re-request
things at "http://www.mysite.com/pmwiki/" and losing the ?action=crypt
in the process.  There's probably not a good way with mod_rewrite
to be able to get ?action=crypt to work when that slash isn't present--
that's just the way mod_rewrite works.
