How many of you thought about dumping Wordpress because of this error?
Wordpress 2.8 insists in this, something that wasn't happening since version 2.6 or so.

How do you handle it?
It's quite easy, all you need to do is to edit your wp-config.php file and remove those 2 extra blank lines at the end, save and re-upload your file.
It should work now.
