What type of cleanurls are you using?  Example 2 under URL Rewriting?
Or something else?

If that's the version you are using then you could probably do
something like this in place of the last .htaccess line:

Here's what is recommended as the normal approach:
RewriteRule ^([A-Z0-9\xa0-\xff].*)$ pmwiki/pmwiki.php?n=$1  [QSA,L]

Here's what it might look like:
RewriteRule ^([^/]*)/([^/]*)(/([^/]*))?$
pmwiki/pmwiki.php?n=$1.$2&show=$4  [QSA,L]

I haven't tested it, but I think something like that might work.  Of
course, I don't know how it might respond if you don't have the final
argument -- probably you would need a separate rule for that or
