Dion, thanks for this bit of info! (Sorry, unrelated to this thread) I'm 
writing a plugin that keeps getting screwed up because my AJAX requests 
are calling all the same plugin logic that my main page requests are 

Do you recommend putting plugin logic that you don't want AJAX requests 
to call in the 'admin_menu' hook, or is there a better place?
