 This also fixes #2610.  But I'm now having a problem where plugin pages
 aren't showing up.

 I use add_submenu_page to add a plugin page under "edit.php".  Like so:

 add_submenu_page('edit.php', 'Do Stuff', 'Do Stuff', 'do_stuff_page',
 'do_stuff', 'my_do_stuff_function');

 But when I take away the "edit_posts" privelege (and thus removing
 "edit.php" as the parent), my plugin page links are changing from "wp-
 admin/edit.php?page=do_stuff_page" to "wp-admin/do_stuff_page" on the
 admin menu.  And of course, I get a big 404 when clicking on them.
