Thanks for pointing me in the right direction.  On the previous site,
the default value worked fine (enabling use of PATH_INFO).  For
whatever reason the detection logic in 1.17 doesn't work properly in
my new environment.  I verified that PATH_INFO is indeed set and

$wgUsePathInfo = true;

to my LocalSettings.php corrected the issue.

MediaWiki truly has a great community full of very helpful people.
It's one of the things that makes this package really great!

Thanks again.
