[wp-hackers] Post ID using 'the_title' in the Latest Activity box

Isn't that is essentially the same as &get_post, which works fine for the 'Recent Posts' bit, but not for 'Recent Comments'. For the comments, the id of the post is stored in $comment and is passed as get_the_title($comment->comment_post_ID). So, I could make $comment global too, and get the ID from there, but there's not enough context to tell if we're looping through $posts or $comments.
Does that make sense?

Isn't $post a global at that point?
$id = $post->ID;
That should work.

(2.3.2) -- does anyone know how to (always) get the id of the post that
the_title() or get_the_title() refers to using the 'the_title' action?
Seems to me like there isn't enough context for this action.
