moin maintains 2 edit-logs:
* one global edit-log (data/edit-log) that has the changes for all
pages (RecentChanges uses this)
* one page-local edit-log (data/pages/PageName/edit-log) that has only
that page's changes (info action uses this)
Maybe just open the edit-log with less (or some other file viewer) and
look if the change entry is there (see local log for some stuff to

No, you can't choose not to have entries in edit-log.
RecentChanges does some optimizations to not show unnecessary duplicates.
E,g, if the page was edited yesterday AND today, it will only show you 1
"update" entry under today (with [1-2] changes) and if you klick that
link, the diff will be over every change since your bookmark.
This behaviour is maybe something one has to get used to / has to know,
but it is definitely superior to simply showing every change, because it
saves you lots of work.
This behaviour might depend on you having set a bookmark (on
RecentChanges) and being logged in.
It might behave different if you are anonymous or don't have a bookmark set.
Looking at your screenshot, you are either not logged in or you never
have set a bookmark - you really should do that for more comfort.
Maybe look at your global edit-log - if it has an entry for the missing
edit and is not corrupted somehow, please post a bug report to the moin
wiki and (if possible, attach those 2 edit-logs and the screenshots), so
we can check if it is an error in moin or just unexpected display.
