I can conclude the edit of pages or section of wikipedia if they are "big" (probably beyond a given size, not yet determined). 
I work with mandrake linux 9.1, linux 2.4, konqueror 3.1. 
With this platform, when I try to edit a "big" page or section, for instance the page 
when I press one of 'Save page' 'Show preview' 'Show changes', for instance 'Show preview' without having modified anything, 
the browser waits for a while, and thereafter I get an error message like this: 
The requested URL could not be retrieved 
While trying to retrieve the URL:  
The following error was encountered:

If I click on  'Save page', the page is not saved. 
Editing "small" pages, or "small" sections of big pages is Ok, for instance editing is ok. 
Editing with windows XP and internet explorer is ok. 
I tried also with mozilla 1.3, lynx 2.8, and Kubuntu linux 6.06 and konqueror, and I get the same problem. 
Unitl a few months ago, I didn't notice this problem, so I guess it has been recently introduced.

Tested on Ubuntu Linux with konqueror, firefox, and chromium on several large pages without any issues. Note that 'grassroot' was moved to 'grassroots' and have never been larger than about 5k, which I would hardly call big. Closing worksforme.
