next_posts_link not working in index.php (3 posts)

    I have a custom permalink structure of:


    For some reason under categories where this pagination is used (in index.php), I get strange errors.

    <?php next_posts_link('<img src=\'/wp-content/themes/lightweight/images/b_next.gif\' border=\'0\' width=\'67\' height=\'20\' alt=\'Previous\' align=\'right\'/>', TRUE) ?><?php previous_posts_link('<img src=\'/wp-content/themes/lightweight/images/b_previous.gif\' border=\'0\' width=\'67\' height=\'20\' alt=\'Next\'/>', TRUE) ?>

    The links return as:


    If I go directly to http://www.new-media.ca/blog/page/2/ it works.

    Because I am on IIS, I have to use 404.php that looks like this:

    $qs = $_SERVER['QUERY_STRING'];
    $_SERVER['REQUEST_URI'] = substr($qs, strpos($qs, ':80')+3);

    I am not sure why this started happening since the upgrade to 2.8. The strange thing is that pagination on posts works just fine - http://www.new-media.ca/blog/2009/ontario-buy-local-grocers-go-independent/

    Any ideas? I really appreciate your help. I am also running to remove "/category/" from the URLs, but I know that it's not the source of the problem (I've disabled it and still got the same strings with /category/ base).

    Correction: I am also running ***a plugin*** to remove "/category/" from the URLs
