Saying 'every time' may have been a lot overstated.  Now that I remember 
exactly the situation, it was upgrading a particular FC2 machine from 
maybe something in the 3.0.9 era to 3.0.11 but another FC2 box worked 
fine.  That machine (or really the users of it) causes me enough 
problems that it seems like when it breaks that the world stops turning 
though ;)

I'll see what happens on the .14 upgrade, hopefully tonight, and check 
in again.
