This message is not fatal, only a warning that your code isn't 100%
perfect <g> -- undefined variables in PHP will not kill a script.  You can
turn off these messages by setting error_reporting(1) so you get
only fatal errors not gentle reminders, which will help you narrow down
what the actual problem is.
