SharePoint 2007 List Item Save Conflicts

On SharePoint Server 2007, after users edit a list item, when they try to edit the item immediately after the initial edit, they get the following error message:

Save Conflict

         Your changes conflict with those made concurrently by another user. If you want your changes to be applied, click Back in your Web browser, refresh the page, and resubmit your changes.
Troubleshoot issues with Windows SharePoint Services.

Due to the critical nature of the list items, users need to make edits.

Thanks in advance for any help.  We will open the doors on our intranet portal and this is one of the last few issues that we have.

I have considered that there may be some latency with SQL updating the databases.  I can not rule that out.  The SQL 2005 server has 4GB and Dual Quad processors.

In most cases, it takes about 5 minutes to be able to edit the list item after an initial edit.  According to one user, there was an instance where it took nearly an hour.  I can not substantiate that claim.

My current topology is one SharePoint 2007 web front end that also runs some shared services and a back end SQL 2005 server which has SAN attached storage.

Windows Server 2003 was based on Windows XP and was released in four editions: Web, Standard, Enterprise and Datacenter. It also had derivative versions for clusters, storage and Microsoft’s Small Business Server. Important upgrades included integrating Internet Information Services (IIS), improvements to Active Directory (AD) and Group Policy (GP), and the migration to Automated System Recovery (ASR).
