Hope you don't mind me posting similar issues I'm having with the same theme in this thread.
I switched recently to Under the Influence (that is I guess more a less on the same day or the day after its release) and there's definitely something wrong:
1. Today, I just opened firefox, went to my blog and I see text on my header. Went to the header in appearance and "Hide text" option is not working;
2. A new text added in the sidebar that certainly wasn't there yesterday saying
theme by spaceperson + powered by wordpress + follow via RSS
3. I can't see the "Theme options" in Appearance (with the customization of the elements, I mean, for example, the columns, and such);
4. There's also no comment area (I just checked it after you mentioned);
That was all that I noticed. I say, this is rather odd, not to mention troublesome. These flaws didn't exist at all initially, did they. They just appeared ?(!)
I really like this theme and I'm certain other people who do can be experiencing the same problems. I hope you can as soon as possible solve this matter.
Anyway, I am, indeed, thrilled with the new theme team (thumb up)
