Hi Thomas,

Fresh copy of moin-1.6.0.tar.gz, uncompress, immediately run moin.py and go to  http://localhost:8080/Something. I get exactly the same thing. It's very curious because it doesn't happen with my previous installation of 1.5. 

I'm running on Mac OSX 10.5 with the Macports version of Python 2.5.1. I just tried it on Ubuntu 7.10 with Python 2.5.1 and it does NOT happen there. 

I suspect somewhere in the code (maybe template engine) it is attempting to build the link and it is using the wrong page name (the intended page name instead of MissingPage). Where in this source is this located. I can try to track it down but no experience with moin source.

That would be nice to know. :)

The strange thing is that we use the standalone server all the time for
testing and we never had such a problem with it.

I suggest you file a bug report on the moin wiki and give much more
details. Try it with a fresh download of the moin dist archive and just 
unpack it (don't do other changes or configuration) and start ./moin.py
and try to reproduce your problem.

Give Python and OS Version in your bug report.
