[wp-hackers] WordPress 2

I've set up a WordPress 2 test site this afternoon.

Some bugs are fun, e.g. when you add a child to 'a page with a very very
very long page title'.

Others are just annoying, e.g. TinyMCE randomly adds spaces in FF.

Others are merely uncaught cases, e.g. the implode error in the file list
when no .htaccess file exists.

Others are misleading, e.g. there is no error or warning when you mess
around with permalinks without a valid editable .htaccess file.

Some make WordPress go wiiiiild, e.g. if you delete the active theme's
directory, wp does not fallback to the default theme.

And I've bumped into fatal errors:

Fatal error: Call to a member function get_page_permastruct() on a
non-object in
c:\Inetpub\wwwroot\semiologic2\wp-includes\template-functions-links.php on
line 92

Fatal error: Call to a member function get_category_permastruct() on a
non-object in
on line 24

Manually deleting every static pages in the DB eventually fixed the first
issue. I've yet to pin down the second one. This is likely due to my
checking against permalinks somewhere in a plugin too early, so I'll
ultimately be fixing both at once.

In any event, however, though, this kind of thing is not what I'd go like to
go through with someone in the support forum.

And the bug list in trac looks scary enough for me to suggest against such a
release this week.
