Description:
When trying to upload some of the per-language indices I have generated locally, I get a null response from the server, there doesn't seem to be an error message, just a blank screen. (I've been trying to save the text at http://www.mediawiki.org/w/index.php?title=Sandbox&action=edit&oldid=191322 to http://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/Index:English/a )

Also, when trying to view some of the indices I have managed to upload I get a null response from the server, ( http://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/Index:English/b ). It is interesting to note that some people are able to see the history of the page, and some are able to see a purged version of the page, however this seems intermittent.

Most of the pages similar to this are fine and work properly ( http://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/Index:English/s ).

Oops, I forgot to mention that the example given (Index:English/a) will not "Show preview" when I try to edit the en.wikipedia or en.wiktionary sandboxes, however it would "Show preview" on en.wikibooks, en.wikiversity and en.wikisource. It also worked fine at mediawiki.org.

Is this issue still current?

Yes, though it now displays a Wikimedia Foundation error message instead of just a blank page.
