I have started receiving notification messages like this every few hours:

Recent PmWikiTEST posts:

I'm not bothered by the Site.ShoutBox -- somebody is spamming me, but
my shoutbox only shows the last 2 hours of "conversation" by default
so it just goes away by itself.  The thing I don't understand is the
change to (in this case) the pages in the PmWiki group.  I have gone
and looked at Site.AllRecentChanges and these pages are not listed.  I
have looked at the pages themselves and the last change was made years
ago (i.e., no change on my site since installation).  I looked via FTP
and the files have not been copied to wiki.d from wikilib.d and the
dates of the files themselves are not anywhere close to 3/24/2010.

I haven't been doing any development or changes at all to this site
for a couple weeks, so no recent changes to config.php.  The only
thing that has changed is that this spammer started messing around and
I've put a group password on a couple groups (including PmWIki).

What could be causing these notifications of changes to pages that
aren't being changed?
