This bug occurs when you are editing a Page and you setup a number of columns to 1 in the Screen Options and then change this setting back to 2. It remains fixed on 1.

Works for me. Once you hide a column, it will be blank upon showing it again. You'll need to move the various meta boxes that started in column 2, back to column 2.

Doubtful, but if the option is literally sticking, could this be a javascript error caused by a plugin?

Yes, that's right. However I think it should go back to its previous position. Also is it quite hard to put it back, is is hard to get that area for stick to appear.

In order for it to go back to the way you had it before the switch, we would have to store each previous position in the database. There should be no reason to do that. Once it changes, it's saved for good and you'll have to change it back manually. Unless we possibly put in a "Reset" option and only store the default positioning?
