 Severity:  normal    |    Keywords:  wp_list_categories, categories, lists
 When you make a call to wp_list_categories(), the use_desc_for_title is
 set to TRUE by default, but even if the category has a description, the
 default text (View all posts filed under..) is shown. Even if you force
 the use_desc_for_title to TRUE in the wp_list_categories() call, it still
 doesnt work.

 I managed to "fix" this bug changing the line 586 in the classes.php file
 if ( $use_desc_for_title == 0 || empty($category->category_description) )


 if ( empty($category->category_description) )

 but, this break the use_desc_for_title variable usage.
