if you still have the page open, View source & you'll see the error message as an HTML comment – Sathya Oct 12 '12 at 8:36
The title I wanted to submit is this: "Sql error in INSERT statement". That title is just as bad as the original one, just saying. See the edit from Bridge for a better title. – Time Traveling Bobby Oct 12 '12 at 8:38
@Sathya. Unfortunatly I closed the page. But it is a valuable advice for the next time. – Alberto De Caro Oct 12 '12 at 8:38
@Sulfurized Demonbobby. In this case I assume the edit would have been rejected. I don't think a bad title causes error. – Alberto De Caro Oct 12 '12 at 8:39

This happens when you try and submit an edit on top of a suggested edit for a post. It was caused by the same cache issue affecting this, a fix has just rolled out.
