Well it does look like there's some sort of issue with numeric 
pagenames. The do seem to show up in the sidebar, but delayed by one. So 
if we create entry "1", it won't show in the sidebar. Create entry "2", 
and "1" shows up. This doesn't happen with alphanumeric entries -- only 
numeric entries.

The really odd thing is that the same form of pagelist is used to 
generate the blog-list, and that works fine -- all entries show up. Even 
the blog-title-list works fine. Only the list in the Sidebar.

I suspect it has something to do with PmWiki's caching mechanism, since 
we're both using that. Possibly something to do with not editing the 
sidebar, and thus cached entries not being regenerated? At this point 
though that's about as far as I can get. Anyone else seen anything like 
this with numeric pagenames?
