I know this question may be difficult to answer, but is
the webserver possibly performing any redirects on pages?
Are you setting a value for $ScriptUrl in local/config.php,
or just accepting the default?
It sounds to me as though the url to which the edit form
is being submitted is being redirected to a different url.
Posted values from forms aren't passed through redirects,
which would completely explain the behavior you're seeing.
