[Moin-user] Behavior change in 1.9.2 question

I am a minimal moin user. I keep a wiki to help me remember computer
configuration info...

This weekend I upgraded Fedora 12 to Fedora 13, this moved moin from
1.8.7 to 1.9.2.

After a bit of blundering around I got the wiki going again.

I use Apache to access the wiki ( located at /var/mywiki)

I have the following directives in httpd.conf

 Alias /moin_static192 /usr/share/moin/htdocs

 ScriptAlias /mywiki /var/mywiki/cgi-bin/moin.cgi

I used the new moin.cgi and wikiconfig.py and hopefully
have set the options properly in wikiconfig.py

the Problem:
  Accessing the wiki with the URL http://localhost/mywiki/ appears to
  work just fine, I can see all of the original pages and the links all
  seem to be working. "MyStartingPage" is displayed  

  Accessing the wiki with the URL http://localhost/mywiki 
  (note no final '/') fails with the message that the page
  'mywiki' does not exist and do I want to create the page.

Taking a peek at the generated javascript ( which I really don't
understand) it appears in the first case ( a trailing slash) that
a search for MyStartingPage is done.

In the second case it looks like the javascript is looking for the
page 'mywiki' which indeed does not exist.

In the 1.8.x ( and earlier ) I could use both of the above
URLS and get 'MyStartingPage' displayed.

So, is there any way to get this old behavior back? 

Have I malconfigured something?
