[wp-hackers] Custom Post Types Clean-Up

Hey Marko,

Yes, I know that, sorry I forgot to mention it. I have a activation hook for the plugin that runs init and flushes rules and a deactivation hook that runs just flush rules. Still, after deactivation, the issue I described is still there. I know that the code runs since I'm tracing to the error log when the activate/deactivate functions are called. I've also tried having another empty plugin with just flush_rewrite_rules in activate/deactivate and then once I've deactivated the original "custom" post type plugin, activate the other one so it's activate function flushes the rules. Even then, way after the original plugin has been deactivated and after three flush_rewrites, the same issue is observed. I'm testing it on twenty eleven now to convince myself it's not a theme-specific issue.

Thank you!
