Heh, same,  I thought it was a plugin for awhile, and never bothered to see
which one. When I did disable all the plugins and it was still screwed up,
that annoyed me. However, I accidentaly messed up the permissions on my
wp-content dir, and I noticed it was fixed, and that's when I dug deeper
into the problem, and tried deleting that index.php file.

It doesn't really matter though, since I have IndexIgnore set in my
.htaccess, it was just in case I deleted that line or something. Also, I
have DirectoryIndex set to index.php, and index.html doesn't work. :P
