Yep perfectly legal (and valid) syntax since it is wrapped in {}.  Yes it is a tad annoying to look at, though.

I thought the $_USER loaded $_TABLES['userindex'] since it loads 
$_TABLES['userprefs']. Don't know why it doesn't. Still, $U['aids'] 
and $U['tids'] is not initialized when an anonymous user hits that code.

Whoa, now my eyes must be bugging out. Line 459 of lib-sessions.php.
     $sql = "SELECT *,format FROM 
{$_TABLES['dateformats']},{$_TABLES["users"]},{$_TABLES['userprefs']} "

Are those double quotes around "users" in $_TABLES["users"] when the 
string is delimited with double quotes?
