OK, this sounds like we're moving in the right direction as I don't
recall needing a rewrite rule for this before.  I will check with my
hosting provider.

I don't find $wgUsePathInfo in my LocalSettings.php; I'm currently on
MediaWiki 1.17.0, which I recognize is pretty ancient at this point.

This was one of the main motivations for changing hosting providers
so that I could get the software upgraded.  At this point, I've
migrated the content and that all seems to work OK except for the
form of the URL and one other issue, which I will post here separately.
