try it. it's missing some css to make the select box fixed width + likely
the options right aligned.

unless I am mistaking a similar bug is in trac already (IE extra spaces
regex). I reproduced by entering several empty paragraphs in a row in FF on
a Windows box

Several sites recommend /%post_id%/%postname% as the more ideal SEO
permalink structure. Those who set this up without any idea of what they're
doing will end up asking for help in the forum if no warning is raised.

> The theme will be reset if you visit the Presentation page.

Correct, but take my word for it as I've handled such an event a dozen times
when I removed the login link in the last release of my theme: Until then,
the user is crying for help because he lost his link to the admin area.

> $wp_rewrite is not available until just before the 'init' action.

yep thanks... I eventually pinned the problem by hooking the relevant plugin
calls into the init action. still, it might make sense to force the
instantiation in the event someone tries to use it before it is available.

my guess is some of the other wp classes are not available in the shutdown
hook either (cf the bug I filed), since not instantiated as references.

As an aside, does anyone know which of these plugins are no longer useful in
