[Moin-user] Problem with MissingPage

I found the answer in the HelpOnInstalling/InternetInformationServer

Starting with MoinMoin 1.3.5, it seems you need to change the Custom
Errors setting for 404 before you can create new pages. You can
accomplish this by performing the following steps:

   1. Go into the IIS Manager, right-click on 'mywiki' (or whatever your
wiki instance directory is called), and select properties.
   2. Next, go to the Custom Errors tab and find the 404 entry, and
click the Edit button.
   3. Set "Message type" to "Default" and click click click until you're
out of all the dialogs.

Subject: [Moin-user] Problem with MissingPage

I am running Moin 1.3.5 on Windows Server 2000 & IIS 5.0

According to HelpOnPageCreation "You create a new page by visiting the
page. If the page does not exists, MoinMoin will suggest to create it."

However when I do this by adding a WikiName to an existing page and
clicking on the link, or typing the new url into the address bar, I get
a page not found error rather than the MissingPage page.

The error log reports the following:
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "C:\Moin\ctswiki\moin.cgi", line 41, in ?
  File "c:\Moin\Lib\site-packages\MoinMoin\request.py", line 908, in run
    self.write(u"\n<!-- ERROR REPORT FOLLOWS -->\n")
  File "c:\Moin\Lib\site-packages\MoinMoin\request.py", line 1184, in
IOError: [Errno 22] Invalid argument

If I select the MissingPage page from the index, it opens just fine, and
as far as I can tell the underlay directory is where it is supposed to

Any ideas?
