That would be nice to know. :)

The strange thing is that we use the standalone server all the time for 
testing and we never had such a problem with it.

I suggest you file a bug report on the moin wiki and give much more 
details. Try it with a fresh download of the moin dist archive and just 
unpack it (don't do other changes or configuration) and start ./moin.py 
and try to reproduce your problem.

Give Python and OS Version in your bug report.
