Under XAMPP 1.8.1, I have been upgrading my phpMyAdmin with each new release. While running 3.5.7 of phpMyAdmin, I noticed that I would get a blank page (right pane) when I selected a table within a database. This was caused by upgrading to IE10 under Win 7 (32). The two work-arounds were to use compatibility mode or do a refresh.. The problem was still there when I upgraded to phpMyAdmin 3.5.8.
I am now using 4.0RC2 of phpMyAdmin with no problems.
