i've just finish a brand new distributed setup and i ran into 2 few issues.

A word about the setup:
2 servers involved both running on debian stable. Wordpress version is 
3.0.4 +dfsg-1~bpo50+1.
The first one handeling client request and, through apache's rewriting 
and proxypass revers rules, ask another server and eventually get datas 
to send back to client.

Urls invoked by client ar on that form http://www.blah.com/~user/blog to 
be rewritten to http://user.blah.blah.com/

The first issue was with the settings side where url were not correctly 
rewritten due to, as far as it seems, a bug code.
The url called after trying to submit changes in the settings panel is 
not concatenated tu the base url site, ie: 
http://www.blah.com/~user/blog/wp-admin/options-general.php leads to 
http://www.blah.com/wp-admin/options-general.php?updated=true instead of 

The second issue was on the dashboard part. Links, for example to 
configure, widgets are broken on the same way described above.

Here is a patch which fix this issue, just by concatenating site_url() 
in order to have a correct complete path just like everywhere else in 
the code (as far as i saw).... Is this relevant ?
