Making this ticket (which is the oldest one we have about that ikiwiki bug) track the root cause of this problem. We have other tickets that track what looks like various symptoms of that bug (not sure what to do with them but people won't stop opening new ones anyway).
This bug is an old one, we've been seeing it from time to sime since years. And since years, I've tried to find a reliable reproducers for this bug a few times, but never managed to find one. One should instrument ikiwiki to debug it properly.
I doubt I'll have time to get to it any time soon. I think this ticket should have higher priority, though.

Yeepee, a reproducer! Thanks a lot. Confirmed on current Debian unstable (3.20150614). Note to anyone wanting to work on this (or to report it upstream): one may need to modify the
ikiwiki-cgi.setup after cloning, and before running
ikiwiki. So "we" can now try and find someone with Perl skills (ikiwiki hacking experience would save them startup time but is not absolutely required) to work on it.
Maybe it would be worth solving this one first as it's related and easy to reproduce?

Now I can't reproduce this anymore :(
I tried with both ikiwiki 3.20160121 and 3.20141016.2:
git reset --hard 1.5
destdirin ikiwiki-cgi.set to
rm -r ./wiki/src/.ikiwiki
ikiwiki -setup ikiwiki-cgi.setup -rebuild
And each time the resulting

I'm aware of this and that's why I'm removing
wiki/src/.ikiwiki each time (for me that's the "ikiwiki state directory") and I really think I did that last time as well... I'll stay on the lookout for more occurrence of this but with no promise.
