I haven't been logged out, but very few of my edits are saving first
time -- I keep getting the "session expired" message, even when I've
only been on the page for a minute or so.  And editing has been
painfully slow.

Lots of discussion about it at the PUMP --

It seems to have started for some people on April 10th. I've been
noticing the slow speed for a couple of days, and since yesterday the
difficulty saving.
