What version of PmWiki?

The most likely problem is that the page has grown too big to be processed.
The best thing to do is to cut down some of the older entries in the
page (just edit it like a normal page), or rename/remove it entirely
to start anew.

In newer versions of PmWiki (>=2.0.0) you can set the $RCLinesMax 
variable to a number like 2000 or so to limit the number of recent edits
that are held in the page.  See also
