It appears as though someone gained unauthorized access to the wplug 
administration code and made a few (apparently harmless) changes to 
various sections.

Short-term, I suggest changing the administration password. Long-term, 
I am convinced that we need to do a full rewrite of the existing code. 
I'm going to start tackling this with PHP/MySQL unless someone can come 
up with a convincing alternative (I do know Java now, so that might be 
an option).
