I wouldn't want to over-complicate this. Simply comparing the current
version and the temporary version (the temp/saved/preview), a simple
warning could be issued (eg. "Warning, the page you are editing is older
than the currently saved version".). At least the person editing the
preview would understand that somebody else had edited the page in the
meantime (proabably a rare occurance for most wiki's).

I wouldn't want my (preview) edits to be recorded. Only when the page
is actually SAVED should the edit be recorded. It should also be part
of the page history.

Agreed, and also, isn't there some kind of merge function now available?
That's also an option, although I've never been fond of that one from
