I've seen this before and put it down to a server 'glitch', I have never seen 
it on my home development system but that is on my home lan. I always make 
sure I backup a page before doing anything on it at all, which is good 
practice anyway. Sorry that is not much help but I have seen it before so its 
not just your server.
