WebRequest is a part of the core code that deals with web client 
interaction, for example it handles the query string at the end of the 
URL (?title=Pagename etc.) and any data you submit via a form - 
providing it in a useful form for other parts of the code. Platonides 
was explaining that the WebRequest part of the code is meant to fix the 
trouble you've been having, unfourtunatley, for some reason, it hasn't. 
This may be a bug, but it should be noted that the installer won't let 
you install MediaWiki while magic_quotes_runtime or magic_quotes_sybase 
is enabled, this may or may not be related.
