At some point recently, the PmWiki distribution started including the  
file wikilib.d/Category.GroupFooter.  This allows on-the-fly  
categories to work but can interfere with category pages you have  
created yourself.

You have several options:
1) Modify Category.GroupFooter (your version, saved in wiki.d/, will  
override the released one in wikilib.d/ even after future releases).   
You can put your (:pagelist:) in the GroupFooter so it works for all  

2) Add a (:nogroupfooter:) to your Category.Light page so that your  
(:pagelist:) works and GroupFooter is ignored.  You would have to do  
this for each page in the Category group.
