I've had something very similar w/the base64 happen to a client of mine. We
ended up creating a separate clean install, and then fresh versions of all
his plugins, then cleaned up his theme folder (which we had a fresh copy in
subversion (SVN)). We also notice it wasn't only WordPress files that were
infected, but other non-WordPress php files as well, so we had our client
change their FTP password & db username / password as well. Since taking all
of these step's, we haven't an issue since. Sounds like you're heading down
the right path.
