just wanted to report an issue (i got it to work via sql, but it would be good to fix it eventually)
I am running wpmu 2.8.3 + atahualpa 3.4.2
The Theme options that store PHP code and html bits (17 in total, list below) somehow got their values scrambled (a slash was added to escape quotes + other things). This made the central (content) panel go blank (the side bars continued to work). I did some digging and found for example for option bfa_ata_content_not_found
"<h2><?php _e('Not Found','atahualpa'); ?></h2>
<p><?php _e(""Sorry, but you are looking for something that isn't here."",""atahualpa""); ?></p>"
the wp_options table had (see the slashes?):
"<h2><?php _e(\'Not Found\',\'atahualpa\'); ?></h2>
<p><?php _e(\""Sorry, but you are looking for something that isn\'t here.\"",\""atahualpa\""); ?></p>"
The complete list of options that had their values scrambled:
I had a backup and restored the values. The central panel started showing pages and posts again.
