the error people get when havign done a clean install is
  Can't call method "type" on an undefined value at 
/usr/local/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.5/Text/WikiFormat.pm line 234

this is caused by the latest version of Text:Wikiformat
if you revert back to 0.71 or so it goes away.
However up and running sites arnt affected.

So when setting up a new CGI:wiki:Kwiki wiki yesterday i got the error.
So i manaully enterd the url to get the edit page


i then added stuff to the  page and commited at which point the error goes 

Therefore i propose the problem lies in the intial Homepage creation code.
which possibly explains the failing tests as well.

Hopefully this will help actual programmers track down the bug.
