[wp-hackers] Scheduling of future posts with a different post_type.

check_and_publish_future_post checks that the post a) exists and b)
has a post_status = 'future'. If so, then it publishes it (using
wp_publish_post). If either fails, then nothing happens, the post is
left unchanged.

Step A is done by simply calling get_post($post_id) on your post. Does
that work properly? Check that get_post() returns your post info.

Step B is done by simply looking at the post_status of the gotten
post. Make sure it is still set to "future" properly.
