Forget it, it was my fault (just a file access problem ;-).

I've just upgraded from 1.9.5 to the latest 1.9.6 and I'm getting a 500 Internal Server error on every requests. In moin.log I can see these errors:

ERROR 2013-02-07 11:46:54,286 MoinMoin.wsgiapp:293 An exception has occurred [my_internal_link_omitted].

Note that I'm using a wikifarm and I have this problem only on 3 of my instances - while 2 of them are working fine. They use the same underlay and static folders. Do you have any hints?

Thank you,
