SharePoint 2007 Edit Form Error

I have two heavily customized lists in a SharePoint 2007 MOSS Standard environment. Both lists were working fine for awhile then some users started to report an error when they tried to edit an existing list item. (I'll paste the error received below). The error is very much intermittent, sometime it happens and sometimes it won't. I've notice that the error most frequently occurs when either one of the list is first opened. I can open an item, put it in edit mode, click "OK" (with or without actually making a change to the item) and it may or may not throw the error below. Sometimes, if the error is thrown, if I go back to the All Items list view, open the SAME list item in edit mode, click ok, the action goes through and returns me to the All Items list view.
Also, I've disabled any workflows associated with the lists and removed the javascript I added to the Editform for more form validation.

I can't find any information about this on the internet and its had me stumped for some time now as its been difficult to troubleshoot what needs to be changed since sometimes the error happens and sometime it doesn't.
Please Help!!

When you edit your list in Sharepoint Designer, you have to removing the "<SharePoint:ItemHiddenVersion runat="server" ControlMode="Edit"/> from your EditForm.aspx and save your list and that should fix your problem.

Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 uses the owshiddenversion Field (in the Microsoft.SharePoint.SPBuiltInFieldId Class) to detect conflicts. If this field value is not supplied during the update process, the server will overwrite all changes. A client must always supply this field value during the update process, in order to prevent data loss. The field value is the number that the server returned most recently.

so above fix will help you the intermittent error you getting.
