Probably this has already been communicated and I just missed it, but just
to be clear...

is not a legitimate windows path as far as I understand. There's a
mis-configuration somewhere where an absolute path (i.e., starting with
"D:\") was specified when a relative path (under wiki.d or some other
pagestore) was needed.

If that path ever gets passed to Pagestore::exists() then I would think
that it's not bad to have an error message appear. In my mind it's the
moral equivalent of a syntax error but from a configuration perspective. So
suppressing the error message with @ may or may not be a good idea... It's
true that from a pmwiki perspective it's legitimate, but it may make life
harder for the person trying to track down the configuration problem.
