I have been using adaptivetheme/adaptivetheme_subtheme for every site I have built for roughly a year and this is the first time I have a problem.
This week I came across an issue where a module didn't "work" with this theme (it also doesn't work with the 6.x-30-rc3). However the module works with Garland and all the themes D6 ships with as well as "Pixture Reloaded" which is a subtheme.
The module is sgrid AKA "Sortable Grid".
I created an issue in the module's issue queue but now I am thinking it should have been created here because it does seem isolated to this adaptivetheme or adaptivetheme/adaptivetheme_subtheme specifically.
The URL is http://drupal.org/node/1893716 and explains the problem in detail.
I am not the guy who actually takes the subtheme and renames it and then makes it pretty, I build the functionality and give it to my partner and he does that part. I will need to make this thing described in the original issue "work" before I can hand it off.
