Thanks for the detailed report of your installation, unfortunately I see no
obvious problem there.
There are some changes to the PageStore class since version 2.2.31: there is a
function that converts between different character encodings. I've recently
fixed a similar issue with blank pages.
However for your installation which had the default ISO-8859-1 encoding,
nothing have changed, the recoding function is not used.
Have you any problems with some other pages from the default installation, for
example blank pages in the PmWiki/ or Site/ groups? These pages come with the
UTF-8 encoding and are converted to yours on the fly.
If you add the following line to config.php, do you still have blank pages?
$PageRecodeFunction = 'IsEnabled';
(This line will completely bypass the PageStore->recode function.)
Can you test some previous PmWiki versions 2.2.30 to 2.2.35 on the same server
