It isn't set on my wiki.  So I suppose the default should be in 
place.  But the  data was there up until day before yesterday. And 
the older data was accessible by directly editing the numbers in the URL.

Plus, I have a second wiki with essentially similar settings.  It 
still has the old data.  But that second wiki has much less activity 
and much fewer users than the first.

No.  No changes since the 1.15.1 upgrade.  Definitely nothing in the 
past week, unless my ISP did something.

Yes, I may need to call in support.
