Editing page (or post) adds -2 to URL (3 posts)

    If I edit a page, a "-2" is added to the permalink.

    > edit this entry ans URL becomes

    I realise this happens when there are duplicate pages/posts with same URL, but there are no duplicates and no drafts.

    It's like the page is locked and when I go to edit, it thinks its a duplicate - but there is none. Going quietly crazy about this one!

    This started after upgrading to 3.0.1

    Please help.

    This is 100% something that was added in the last year. I was able to make child pages with numerical slugs before that. I had /twitter-archive/2009/, but can't make /twitter-archive/2010/. And when I go to make any changes to these old child pages, WordPress wants to automatically change the slugs!

    Yeah. I don't know what changed (I suspect: how slugs are checked against the rewrite rules) but this kind of sucks. Just have to use letters, somehow. Oh well.
