What are the URLs that the 404 messages come from?  Are they correct?

One possibility that somehow an illegal character has entered the  
system; or that a page has been created which has the same name as  
the attachment.  Or that the filename on disk is not the same that  
JSPWiki is using.  This may happen on Windows, which has some weirdo  
arcane mappings (e.g. "DELETEME" might actually appear as "deleteme").
