My .htaccess file was missing the:
RewriteRule     ^(pl(/.*)?)$            mythweb.pl/$1           [QSA,L]
line. My database and passwords don't match the defaults, so I
have been checking ( diff ) the difference between my .htaccess
file and the one from svn. I missed this added line....

sorry for the confusion.
