Apparently, I'm not alone: There were postings to Wikipedia Help Desk [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Hd#PDF_won.27t_appear] and Village Pump (technical) [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:VPT#.22PDF_version.22_option_not_working]

It also seems that other wikis are having the same issue.

Throwoing +shell and Rob's e-mail on this. Seems to still be kinda broken and I can't find anything relevant in the server admin log.

Column Prototype
This is a very early prototype of a persistent column. It is not expected to work yet, and leaving it open will activate other new features which will break things. Press "\" (backslash) on your keyboard to close it now.
