Okay, I think most of the problems should be fixed (I had forgotten to set all the paths required).  Let us know if you spot any other problems.

I don't know if it has something to do with it, but some spam messages appeared on the forum, such as:
http://www.arduino.cc/cgi-bin/yabb2/YaBB.pl?num=1173955757
http://www.arduino.cc/cgi-bin/yabb2/YaBB.pl?num=1171926099 [3rd post]

Could an administrator check the list of forum members to delete spammers ?

Usually, the spam gets deleted relatively quickly and seems to be under control, but if it becomes more of a problem, we will definitely look into giving more users the ability to delete it or other solutions.
