I can happily confirm that this is NOT an issue in 1.5.2, it was fixed
as soon as he reported it which was after my initial build but before
anyone had really downloaded it. If you were on IRC and grabbed it right
away and have register globals on and don't have mod_security you may
want to check to see if your wp-settings.php matches .
