This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

Page in this case is post name or number of page of tha same post? If it's just post name, as i can gues from your permalink structure - then wp should'n add any numbers, unless there is already post with the same name. – Tommixoft May 21 '12 at 7:11

Looks like the slug "page" is already being associated with some other post. So Make sure there is not post in trash which is capturing the slug.
