I just found an interaction problem between the WP Stats plugin (tested with WP Stats v1.6) and one I'm writing, Picasa Album Uploader. I generate a fake post entry using post_id -1 and it's causing the Stats plugin some grief. With the stats plugin enabled, I get a max execution time exceeded at line 991 of stats.php.
It looks like the problem is that the function
dec2sixtwo() loops forever if the post_id is -1. Poking around google, the generally accepted method to generate a fake post is to use -1 for the post id.
For right now I'm going to set
false and that appears to allow things to work with both my plugin and WP stats enabled.
Should I worry about this further? My plugin is functioning OK with these two
$wp_query values as
false. But this feels a bit hacky...
