OK guys, here is the deal:

A few days ago, I finally managed to update the minecraft server and convert the map to be compatible with the new ID’s and the anvil file format. You might red about this on the MC forums, the map is now 256 blocks high. After that update we experienced some different bugs, which were basicly configuration issues. Mobs couldn’t spawn, no redPower/BuildCraft machine, which modifies blocks in the world worked properly.
After I did some plugin switches and alot of configuration additions these bugs are now solved. There might be another update within the next 1-2 weeks. It will add non pending future plans.
