#1355 closed defect (bug) (fixed)

General category always assigned

Description

When submitting a new entry with an XML-RPC client, whatever category I choose, General is assigned along with it. This has been reported on the Wordpress and ecto support fora, specifically:

http://wordpress.org/support/topic/9698
http://bb.infinite-sushi.com/viewtopic.php?t=719

The problem has been traced to an else block which has been inserted into xmlrpc.php at line 583:

`else {
$post_category[] = 1;
}`

This would appear to be unncessary, because General / Uncategorized is automatically assigned when no category is specified. I checked this myself with both the WP web interface and with ecto and w.bloggar.
