Oops, please ignore the patch in the first comment and consider the attached one. The pasted one omitted a necessary related patch to allow absolute URLs in the admin menus.

This is really code specifically for Markdown (which isn't even included in the default WP package anymore). It would be better to have a more general solution. Best option would to have the code in the Markdown plugin itself.

It should also be noted that the posting interface can be modified by a plugin, so this really isn't the place for it. File up a report with the author of the Markdown plugin.
