[wp-hackers] Please help diagnose custom post type permalinkproblem

Are you using register_taxonomy() on the "rsvpmaker-type" ? I noticed you 
using taxonomy => in the register for the post type instead of 

You're also using 'rewrite' => true  - instead of 'rewrite' => array( 'slug' 
=> 'rsvpmaker' ) which is fine; of course I would do: 'rewrite' => array( 
'slug' => 'comic', 'with_front' => true ),  to make sure that just in case 
if someone is using subdir installation of wpms can attach /blog/ at the 
front .. (as far as I understand how that works)

I've done a lot of work with custom post types recently and only encountered 
something like that if I wrote something out of place when it was trying to 
create the rewrite rules .. or some other plugin was interferring.

There are a few themes and plugins that check all post types instead of just 
the one they're working with.

for example they're doing this:

 $args = array(
   'public' => true,
   '_builtin' => false
 $output = 'names';
 $operator = 'and';

 $post_types = get_post_types( $args , $output , $operator );

which basically gets all custom post types then working with them, so what 
is happening is its creating a different set of rewrite rules then the ones 
intended (if they work with it afterwards), ... so could you look at what 
else is running on her setup and see if it could be conflicting?
