> OK, here's a weird one. Upgraded PHP 5.2.8 to 5.2.9 on a server today.
> The server hosts 90 WP sites on 50 or so domains. Immediately
> afterwards, all categories on all blogs are empty.

Additional datapoint: If I create a brand new 2.7.1 blog, it's  
affected by the same problem in the same way. I can create categories  
and put posts in them, but all categories appear empty. So this is  
definitely not a matter of old data being corrupted - it's a server- 
wide WP problem.
