The problem is cache related. Disabling the cache fixes the problem. So 
I suspect what's happening is that the sidebar pagelist is not being 
refreshed in the cache, since it hasn't been edited. I'm not sure if 
there is a way to force refresh the cache -- perhaps someone can comment 
on that.

Tim: You can test this out by disabling the cache -- comment out these 
two lines:
#	$WorkDir = dirname(__FILE__).'/../work.d';
#	$PageListCacheDir = $WorkDir .'/';
