The fix for #77793 broke the previous behaviour that allowed to use a page alias (string) instead of a uid (integer) as argument for the pageUid attribute

It is possible to use the page alias everywhere else (because the typolink definition allows to use the page alias instead of the uid) and thus I think it should be fixed in the FormViewHelper.

If this worked before it is by coincidence. The argument type for `pageUid` was `int` also before the linked patch and as such it should not support string values. So I lean towards calling this "unsupported usage" and closing this bug report (since technically this is no bug).

On the other hand you might want to open a feature request to allow `mixed` as type of the argument and some further checking instead of assuming it is an integer. However, that would constitute a FEATURE (API change) and would not be accepted into the 7.6 branch.
