in my experience when you click on a hyperlink and nothing happen, it seems that an exception or a problem occurs during the request lifecycle and this problem prevent request to reach to the respected managed bean.

and unfortunately, there is no exception message.

so I recommend you remove all columns, or if you have any other component in this page remove them and add them one by one, and after adding each one test to see whether it has problem or not and you will find the component cause this problem.

sometimes it is because of conversion a value in client when to the relative manage bean instance variable.

hope this help

well if you read the documents of Tomahawk, it is said:

When this attribute is "true", the data behind the current DataModel is saved after the render response phase and restored in the restore component tree phase

Whenever you use a DataModel backed by a database connection you could run into problems, when the data in the database has changed since the last request. All Lifecycle phases prior to the render response phase iterate the DataModel and assume that the DataModel is unchanged since the last request. At least the row count must not have changed, because all children of UIData that are bound to the DataModel rely on it. But even if you can assure that row count never changes, a change in the data can have unintentional sideeffects.
Using the preserveDataModel feature prevents such problems. The DataModel (to be more exact: the currently visible part of the DataModel given by the first and the rows attribute) is freezed right after rendering and you can be sure that all lifecycle actions during the next request happen on exactly the same data.

you can find these in following links:

http://wiki.apache.org/myfaces/Working_With_DataTable_And_PreserveDataModel

http://myfaces.apache.org/tomahawk/extDataTable.html

But
I think it's not resolved your problem, it seems some of your data are invalid or make problem and by setting that attribute to true you just ignore the problem.
