Any attempt to change the email address in preferences results in the following error:

The error header is: "Invalid NULL return from broken hook logPrefsEmail".

What wiki is this?
Comment 3 Aryeh Gregor (not reading bugmail, please e-mail directly) 2007-06-28 03:54:50 UTC
Never mind, confirmed on English Wikipedia.

I can't find any use of that hook anywhere in trunk.  Either I'm blind or this is a non-versioned hack of some sort.  If I had to guess I'd suspect it's something related to the recent password-cracking issue, with e-mail and password changes being privately logged.  Thus it presumably escaped the crackdown on improper returns just now.

It appears to be a live hack. Bumping to shell attention.
