 It appears a new problem has come to the surface that looks similar as
 described in this ticket but a little more severe.

 I'm a firefox user and i have the latest version installed, a friend of
 mine (IE user) has installed the latest WP version 2.2.1 and what happens
 is that he can't simply write a post. The problem may be due to the visual
 editor being checked but this shouldn't be allowed to cause a problem.

 I can't verify unfortunately because IE causes login problems now as well
 for me.

 In Firefox the visual editor is the cause of the problem not being able to
 write a post that shows when published, you can place your cursor in the
 body field and type a post but without unchecking the visual editor it
 does not show when published.

 The Post title does show though.

 I have a previous version hosted locally on my computer and everything
 works fine as it should.

 With the latest version it's also not possible to switch from visual to
 code, you're stuck with visual unless you manually uncheck it.

 All in all a pretty serious problem that needs to be resolved.
 A thread on the support forum has been created as well by someone else and
 he is not alone experiencing this problem.
