As I wrote before, the pages are working correctly.  So I created a directory /wiki.d in the root of the file system, the messages disappeared, and in this directory I found two files.

So these are the files that are causing the problem.   They used to be placed in wiki.d  in the pmwiki tree, but something is messing the pointer up.
I don't know if pmwiki will read them from this location, and I cannot leave them there, but at least I know part of the problem.

Now where is the pointer being mucked up?

Thanks for your help.
