So, what you're saying is that you can't have a page slug that is the
same as a subdomain? Is there any documentation on this?  Is there
someplace that says, don't name your pages the same as your subdomain?
 If this is so, this sounds like an issue that needs to be addressed
with either documentation or a fix.

You shouldn't jump to a conclusion such as this when WP 3.0 has just
come out.  It *could* be a bug.

He stated in his original post that he deactivated all the plugins and
there was still an issue.

In the future, don't jump to conclusions, it makes the rest of us look
