Sometimes plugin-specific variables don't get resolved or 'bogus' error messages like the following are shown (line number may differ):
Undefined subroutine &TWiki::Plugins::WorkflowPlugin::UserIsAllowed called at /home/httpd/twiki4/lib/TWiki/Plugins/WorkflowPlugin.pm line 421.

If you keep reloading the page in question, it will eventually work (and fail yet again after another page reload), regardless whether the user is administrator or not. Since the behaviour seems erratic, you may not encounter these errors during (very) brief tests.

My configuration: Linux, apache/2.2.6, perl 5.8.8

Currently activated Plugins: GluePlugin, IfDefinedPlugin, SpreadSheetPlugin, AliasPlugin, AnyWikiDrawPlugin, AttachContentPlugin, BibtexPlugin, BlogPlugin, BreadCrumbsPlugin, CommentPlugin, CompareRevisionsAddonPlugin, DBCachePlugin, EditTablePlugin, EmptyPlugin, ExternalLinkPlugin, FilterPlugin, FlexWebListPlugin, GenPDFLatexPlugin, HeadlinesPlugin, HistoryPlugin, ImageGalleryPlugin, ImagePlugin, InterwikiPlugin, LatexModePlugin, MediaWikiTablePlugin, PerlDocPlugin, PreferencesPlugin, RecursiveRenderPlugin, RedDotPlugin, RenderListPlugin, RevCommentPlugin, SlideShowPlugin, SmiliesPlugin, TablePlugin, TagCloudPlugin, TagMePlugin, TimeSincePlugin, TwistyPlugin, UserInfoPlugin, WebPermissionsPlugin, WorkflowPlugin

(NB: This error seems unrelated to Item5369; it probably hasn't been noticed before because Item5369 prevented non-administrators from actually using the WorkflowPlugin with TWiki 4.2 and not many administrators with current installations seem to use it regularly.)

I get very similar errors (RHEL, Apache 2.2.6, Perl 5.8.5). No amount of refreshing will bring things to life. Here's what I see in the error log when I try to start the example topic "DefectOne" through its workflow (some info redacted). USERNAME is always the user currently logged in.

This was the result of poor use of the Func API in the plugin. Fixed.
