I think this is the bug that has been plaguing WordPress and me for 
months.  You remember the bug whereby if you created a draft and then 
published, your pingbacks would be sent out with crufty ?p= URIs?  If 
you honestly fixed that bug, I owe you a beer.  I spent about 2 hours 
trying to fix that bug and failing.
