* tracking the problem.

I have two different problems:

one very difficult to get. from mediawiki source, I had lines like this

long line. Using [@ @] fixed the problem

I had several

    * list line

that is lists with several blancs in front *in the source*. This is 
not good in PmWiki (but works in mediawiki). It's difficult to find 
because having blanks in the text you read is normal everywhere except 
in pmwiki source..

anyway easy to find with the first item
