I know, I know ... I feel like an idiot.  Thanks for taking the time
to have a look and catch that error ...  I actually found that myself
last night (after staring at that typo over and over and missing it
every time), and it was indeed the problem.  That bad conditional was
running my DB update scheme on every single page load.  Oops.

I found the problem thanks to Jeremy's suggestion of installing WP-
Tuner.  I can't believe I haven't installed this before - it's
brilliant for troubleshooting.

Thanks all,
