#42656: Multisite Global $pagenow variable

 When the site is configured as multisite, plugins are loaded before
 "vars.php", causing plugin getting null value when trying to access the
 $pagenow variable.

 Sample Plugin : Brightcove Video Connect
 Defect : Setting page is empty
 Caused by : In the setting page logic, it will check whether $pagenow is
 in the array of 'admin-ajax.php', 'admin.php', 'post-new.php', 'edit.php',
 'post.php'. And since the $pagenow is not initialized yet, it will just
 display an empty page.
