[pmwiki-users] Not able to view "Attached:" files with new directory structure

The problem with this installation was a custom setting of $PubDirUrl which  
prevented PmWiki to guess the $UploadUrlFmt location. Setting in config.php  
that variable $UploadUrlFmt to its correct location fixed the issue.
