Yes, still. The wiki.d directory, and all its subdirectories (per group subdirectories) and the dot files in wiki.d are all server writable. And these pages work fine. I can edit them as normal.
It would seem as if one of PmWiki's internal pointers is mucked up. It is trying to create a file in //wiki.d, instead of in the pmwiki root directory. And of course it has no permission for that.
