Magento can not REALLY save attribute

Hi experts,

Since couple of days ago I have a problem with saving attribute color in Magento.
It says saved but it does not really save.
Tried to insert a value for the color in English uk and French en push the save button. I can  see the message "the attribute color has been changed". But when I click on "Manage Label/Options" again to see if the value I just inserted really saved. I see that it is again empty.
There are many iteams (1000 itemas ) on Attribute color so something has difficulty to save them on the server. But I do not know where should I start to fix. Is it a problem with mangento, javascript,mysql or something els on the Ubuntu server?

My provider changed his name sever ip couple of days ago. I inserted the new name severs in /etc/resolv.conf file. Everything goes ok. Except Saving color attribute. Does changing name server has anything to do with this issue? I already reboot the server. But it did not help.

I hope somebody has some solution for this issue.

Thank you,

The multiple store may be what is bottlenecking the update with that many colours that it is trying to update.
That many colours is very high - have you thought about breaking them down into more constituent parts i.e. instead of 100 colours in varying shades of blue just have 1 colour blue and a seperate attribute for the varieties of blue.

Thank you GaryC123 for you reply.
Problem is that we are using locally  Naision to import export our products so it is getting to complicated to reconfigure all these system to achieve our goal.

Is it not possible to copy all color attribute in English store which is complete to Engish UK en French store through phpmyadmin? so yes, Which table do i need to touch?

Or is it not possible to modify php code of porduct view page to show ALWAYS the color attribute from English store for English UK or French?
It's not as simple as just copying a table in Magento - many tables are connected even for just simple things.
I recommend you contact the Navision and ask them since it is their plugin that is failing
