An additional comment - I was reading more about register_globals just
now, and I don't think anything in my script relies on that, at least
not as I understand it. The page this error came up on does have a
session_start() at the beginning but doesn't actually call any session
variables. It does extract the visitor's username from a previously set
cookie to see if they're logged in, but it references that as
$_COOKIE['username'] which as far as I understand is legitimate. It
doesn't use any uninitialized variables.

Any ideas?
