Do you get the same on the login screen?
I have seen this with plugins that set things in $_POST if there are not
there unconditionally - i.e. they don't check for it to be a POST request.
WP checks for the existence of $_POST in places before reporting some of
these types of errors.
One plugin I know that does this is the latest version of Ryan Duffs
contact form plugin.
