That's normal. In case of conflicts, you're supposed to see your and the
other guy's changes, integrate them, and save the results. If you get a
blank page and save that, PmWiki assumes that the "integration result"
is a blank page and will save it. (No serious harm done though, you can
always revive it from page history.)

Yes, I've seen that from day one of my usage. At that time, I took it to
be some installation issue and didn't bother to fix or report it until I
got around to further investigation, which kind of never happened until
Besides, it hasn't been a problem for me yet: Of my three wikis, one is
single-author and will remain so, the other hasn't left the initial
single-author phase yet, and the third is extremely low-traffic so
conflicts are too unlikely to have happened yet.
Just to keep interested parties informed - too much going on for me
right now to do anything about the issue. (Something *should* be done.)
