One of our sites had something that might have been similar -- I don't
recall the exact error message -- but anyway, while I never did figure
out what caused it, the problem cleared up once I removed all the
"pagename,new" files and the .flock file from wiki.d.

The "pagename,new" files did not contain the valid data in my case,
