Thanks to both of you. I made it work.
It was the problem with wpEdittoken, since I got logged in via ldap.
Deactiving ldap it worked. For others having same problems, it's a
really good tip enable debugging.
To be able to do edits I simply read all input tags from the site,
eliminated the preview and diff button and sent all the others as post
