Does PmWiki show some warning message? Something like "Cannot write page to  
$pagename ($pagefile)...changes not saved"

Does it happen to some or to all edited pages? Do you have enough disk  
space? Is there any pattern? Does the problem happen when the posted text  
contains some specific words or phrases? Does it happen for some page names?

When did it start? Were there some changes to the system, server or  
configuration just before?

Nothing changed in how PmWiki saves a disk file so I suppose that the  
problem is elsewhere and will not be fixed if you upgrade.
