    I've got the same problem with a new install of version 2.5 on a Windows Server 2003 (IIS 6).

    Version 2.3.3 is running fine !

    I can't also write or edit a page, the edit page start to load but hang and part of the page is missing. I'm locking the server for several minutes until the process stop... weird ??? Everything else is okay...

    ...I'm lost !!!

    Hum... after a few test i found that the "Page Template Box" is causing the problem in the page form (edit-page-form.php). When the code is not there the page doesn't hang anymore. So "get_page_template" or "page_template_dropdown" is to blame but why ???

    Still no luck with the access to the "Theme" and "Plugin" page from the dashboard...

    I'm getting close but i need some help...

    ...all my problems are connected, i can't access the "Themes" page because WordPress is stuck trying to read the header infos inside the "styles.css" file. Same thing with the "Plugins". The "Page Template Box" in the new and edit page is also reading infos from inside the file.

    Can someone point me in the right direction !?!

    With version 2.3.3 only the Read and Write permissions was needed... must i change something with version 2.5 ???

    I still can't find the source of the problem in the code but here is my changes to make version 2.5 work.

    To make the "Themes" page and the "Page Template Box" in the edit "Page" fonctionnal, you have to remove the anchor tag in the Description of the default theme.

    (wp-content/default/style.css)
    [before]

    To make the "Plugins" page fonctionnal, you have to remove every anchor tag in the Description of every plugins and also remove the "Plugin URI" and "Author URI" reference.

    (wp-content/plugins/hello.php)
    [before]

    Plugin Name: Hello Dolly
    Plugin URI: http://wordpress.org/#
    Description: This is not just a plugin, it symbolizes the hope and enthusiasm of an entire generation summed up in two words sung most famously by Louis Armstrong: Hello, Dolly. When activated you will randomly see a lyric from <cite>Hello, Dolly</cite> in the upper right of your admin screen on every page.

    Well i found the cause of my problem with the default theme !!! :)

    I'm using the french version of WordPress 2.5 and in this release they have change the encoding of the style.css file from ISO to UTF-8.

    So i put back the file in ISO and Voila !

    The theme page now work perfectly !
