Dear Patrick,

Thanks for the response.

I'm using a normal installation of pmwiki and the normal edit sequence. 
I only changed the skin to abitmodern.

Given the build-in guards you've mentioned, this seems to be the most 
likely explanation. I will contact our system maintainance department 
and ask them to investigate. I think the bug can be closed. There seems 
to be no other way pmwiki can guard against this.

Best regards,
