I'm using the sagenb server, and when I ask for a New Worksheet, here's what happens:

The last worksheet I've used appears, not a new one, and then I'm offered a chance to change its name.

Is there a bug somewhere, either with me or the server?

We've seen some reports of this, but it's been very hard to isolate. Is it actually the same worksheet (same number) or a copy of the same one (different number)? This shouldn't happen consistently, by the way, so hopefully trying again should work okay.

I think I've had this problem both ways. I just tried it again, and so here's what happened exactly. I was working on, I asked for a new worksheet, and I got, but with the option to change then name from 'untitled'. There doesn't seem to be a way for me now to get an absolutely new worksheet.

I often have the same problem . When I connect to the site and I click on the button "New Worksheet" , the website open a new tab at the address : and propose me to rename worksheet ! I click on the "close" button and when I want to open a new worksheet from the File menu , the website open a new tab at the address : . So I repeat the same operation (click to close and click to open a new worksheet ) until I have a new REAL worksheet ! However , yesterday even if I had the same problem, thereafter when I disconnected and then reconnected , the problem disppeared, even if I connected with another pc. (......)

( ....) Now when I have this problem, I click on the close button and I click on " Copy worksheet" from the File menu and I rename the file.

A workaround is to go to "Edit" and just erase everything... but of course that is not ideal. I've never seen this, so I'm not sure how to go about debugging it; it seems only to happen on the very largest servers.
