Yes, thanks for this info Daniel. This issue has just arisen in the last 
week due to the upgrade of the moinmoin on the server (so not directly 
due to KForge). We are working to resolve this and should have fixed 
very soon (this will include fixing your wiki installation).

Yes, this a bug we have encountered once before :) I have fixed this for
