For some very strange reason, if one uses SpreadSheetPlugin and IfDefinedPlugin in the same topic, the topic will not load and an error is displayed that says: "Insecure dependency in eval while running with -T switch." The apache errorlog reports: "Insecure dependency in eval while running with -T switch at /var/www/path/to/lib/TWiki/Plugins/SpreadSheetPlugin/Calc.pm line 982."

Although the error message references SpreadSheetPlugin, if IfDefinedPlugin is not used, there is not error and the page loads fine so somehow it's implicated.

Peter Thoeny attempted to debug it with me earlier today but we could not figure what was wrong.

Right now, I just hoping to get some feedback to see where the bug actually lies. Michael, perhaps you might have insight into why or how IfDefinedPlugin would be affecting SpreadSheetPlugin. Perhaps that would give us a hint as to what's going wrong with SpreadSheetPlugin.

Never mind... I can't reproduce this on lastest versions of TWiki. I was using the latest versions of the two plugins but not the lastest TWiki. So I'm discarding this bug report. My apologies for the waste of time. :- -- LynnwoodBrown - 11 Apr 2007

The problem persisted on one site, even with most recent code for core and all plugins, but I was finally found the same problem described and solved in TWiki:Plugins/BlogPluginDev#Insecure_dependency_error .
