There have been similar reports in earlier versions, and the problem came  
from the recent character recoding functions in PmWiki. It appears that some  
PHP installations don't behave the way they are documented and expected, so  
we need to find them, test them and change PmWiki to deal with them.

I have the feeling that this may again be the case, and it can be checked  
easily. If you add the following line to config.php, do you still have blank  

  $PageRecodeFunction = 'IsEnabled';

(This line will completely bypass the PageStore->recode function.)

If the blank pages appear repaired, then the problem is likely somewhere in  
our recode function and I'll fix it or provide some switch or workaround. I  
may need to test your installation in realtime.
