Dear group,
I'm having a weird problem at the moment.
I can't make changes on pages in my wiki.
It began with the problem of repeatedly asking for the edit password 
today , where the wiki worked well before.
The only thing i can think of is the fact that my host has upgraded to 
PHP 4.4.2 (build 16-03-2006).
I can't find any differences in the session-settings between the hosted 
wiki and my test-wiki at home (where everything works fine with PHP 4.3.11)
Anyone care to take a look at www.de-theeroos.nl where i put a clean 
install of PmWiki 2.1.3 (problem was first encountered with 2.0.13)?
Try to edit the homepage with edit password 'secret' and you will see. I 
have put EnableDiag on. Securitysettings are good (777 on wiki.d).
What i see happening is that after an edit submission a file 
Main.HomePage,new is made in wiki.d with 0 bytes alongside the file 
Main.HomePage. When i delete Main.HomePage from wiki.d and edit the 
HomePage handed from wikilib.d, this first edit succeeds and puts a new 
file in wiki.d. The second edit after that fails again.
I took a look at PHP.net and saw that there was recently a bug reported 
for 4.4.2 on the subject of   'sessions' (reportnr 36782) but i am not 
able to see if it is related.
Greatings, DirkBlaas
