Hiding categories in WordPress 3.1.1


Starting with WordPress 3.1.1, my previously discussed functions.php method for hiding posts filed in certain categories works again, and the latest workaround with RYO Category Visibility 3.0beta-9 is now broken.

There must have been a bug in WordPress 3.1 that prevented the former from working, which the latter worked around. Perhaps this:
