Use of add_theme_page() causes Wordpress on IIS to crash.

The P2 Theme uses the following line to add a theme settings page:
add_theme_page('Prologue Options', 'Prologue Options', 8, __FILE__, 'prologue_options_page');
On IIS this causes a 500 Error and the admin section can not be loaded anymore.
When we substitute __FILE__ by a string, e.g. "p2" everything starts behaving again.
The following might be the cause of the problem:
__FILE__ is passed through the function plugin_basename() in add_submenu_page()... usually that function strips out the path and returns only the plugin filename; for themes that does not work and the function returns the full path to the theme's functions.php.
I don't know why it only crashes on IIS but the value of plugin_basename() is used for a few things including for registering an action hook (which means that it's probably used as a key of an array at some point).
