In the list of the preprocess functions that theme() looks for, the parameter list for such functions is always reported to be &$variables, even for template_preprocess(&$variables), which instead gets an additional parameter.

Title: Documentation problem with theme() » theme() doc - list of functions called is incorrect

Thanks! This does indeed look like a problem. D6 only (it was fixed in d7).

Patch attached. Looking through the code for theme(), it seems that $hook is actually passed as second parameter to *all* preprocess functions, including the hook-specific ones. Since the parameter does not serve any use for those functions, I think it's best to leave it undocumented there...
