The problem is getData() was deprecated in favor of getData(request). 
Most of the places where getData is called by the internal workings of 
woven used some introspection to discover whether the particular 
getData took the request or not, and gave a warning if not, but it 
looks like I missed this call in Widgets. If you change the "def 
getData(self)" in stikiwiki to "def getData(self, request)" this will 
go away.

Woven's API has been somewhat of a moving target, although it is 
stabilizing now. There is much more Woven documentation included in 
1.0.5rc2, check it out.
