Ok I have a wierd issue with custom meta boxes that I am at a loss for.

I am using this class

<?php
class ARIXWP_Meta {

    private $meta     = null;
    public $postid    = null;
    private $template = null;

    function __construct() {
        add_action('save_post',array(&$this, 'save_meta_data'));
    }

    function __destruct() {
        $this->meta     = null;
        $this->postid   = null;
        $this->template = null;
    }

    public function init_meta() {
        add_action('admin_init',array(&$this, 'add_meta'));
    }

    public function add_meta() {
        if ($this->meta['template'] == $this->template) {
            add_meta_box($this->meta['id'], $this->meta['title'], array(&$this, 'format_meta'), $this->meta['post_type'], $this->meta['context'], $this->meta['priority']);    
        }
    }

    public function format_meta() {
        global $post;

        if (!isset($post)) return false;

        if ($this->meta['post_type'] != $post->post_type) return false;

        $this->set_postid($post->ID);

        // Use nonce for verification
        echo '<input type="hidden" name="' . $this->meta['nonce_name'] . '" value="', wp_create_nonce(basename(__FILE__)), '" />';

        foreach ($this->meta['fields'] as $field) {
            // get current post meta data
            $meta = get_post_meta($post->ID, $field['id'], true);

            if (isset($field['before']) && $field['before'] != "") {

and this is the php to call the class

    $arixwp_meta->set_postId();
    $arixwp_meta->set_template();
    $arixwp_template  = $arixwp_meta->get_template();

    if ($arixwp_template == $meta_template) {
        $arixwp_meta->set_meta(array(

            'id'         => $meta_id,

            'post_type'  => $meta_posttype,

            // Sidebar Location

                array (
                    'before'    => '',
                    'after'     => '',
                    'name'      => __( 'Sidebar Location', THEMENAME ),
                    'desc'      => __( 'This allows you to override the default sidebar settings.', THEMENAME ),
                    'id'        => '_arixwp_sidebar_page',
                    'type'      => 'radio', // text,textarea,select,radio,checkbox
                    'default'   => 'left',
                    'options'   => array(
                        array('name' => ' Left', 'value' => 'left'),
                        array('name' => ' Right', 'value' => 'right'),
                        array('name' => ' None', 'value' => 'none')
                    )                               
                ),                                  

            )
        ));

        $arixwp_meta->init_meta();
    }

    $arixwp_meta = null;

I am using several instances of this for posts and custom page templates and it works fine. But when just trying to apply it to a generic page. The Meta boxes show when you choose to add a new page. But as soon as you save or publish they dissappear.
