Yeah for some reason I have a bunch that are set to the non-permalink, and 
not the /?p=

for example here:  http://frumph.net/shop/?comic=736  i'm doing a var_dump 
of $post->guid;

a couple comics previous it's showing the same thing with the $post->guid; 
where it's not the /?p= type,  cannot reproduce why they're setting to the 
permalink structure, nor have I noticed it previous to this, however they 
are. /odd
