Comment (by georgestephanis):

 Re @jeherve's remark above, yeah --

 The changed line in `WP_List_Table::single_row_columns` from

 list( $columns, $hidden ) = $this->get_column_info();


 list( $columns, $hidden, $sortable, $primary ) = $this->get_column_info();

 is causing a notice (not an error) if `get_column_info()` doesn't return
 four indexes in the array.

 I suspect it's the initial failout clause in `get_column_info()` that is
 causing it --

 if ( isset( $this->_column_headers ) )
         return $this->_column_headers;

 I'd suggest that for backcompat, if `$this->_column_headers` doesn't
 contain four array items, we add on a fourth with a value of

 Unless there's objections, I'll try to get a patch inbound.
