The way I see it, "acl_rights_before" are the settings you never want anybody 
to be able to change, "acl_rights_default" are the settings you normally want 
applied, and #acl gets added when you need to make a page "abnormal".  It all 
makes sense and works great...when it works.  ;)

I was able to get a second server set up with a bone stock install of TurnKey 
Linux MoinMoin (greatest distro ever...took 15 minutes for it to be up and 
running).  Using the default wiki instance, everything works as it should, so 
there has to be something about the way my wiki instances got migrated over 
that created this acl issue.  Next step will be to try migrating an instance 
over to this test server to see what happens.  That'll be early next week though.

Thanks again for all the help, and have a good weekend!
