I am having the exact same issue. I have even gone as far as to delete and reinstall WordPress 2.2.2 from scratch, but no good. With zero plugins, and zero themes, I cannot create a new page.
With me, the problem is slightly different, but the result is the same: I go through the process of creating a page, and no matter what button I hit (save and continue, save, publish, whatever), the page immediately gets saved as a Draft Post. (Not a draft page, if such a thing exists, but a draft post).
I'd love a resolution to this.
For what it's worth, I had also installed DezinerFolio, which is how I stumbled across this post, googling for help. But I didn't install DezinerFolio when I re-uploaded the whole WordPress install again.
