Differences between $Drush cron and web cron
Oh man, I just learned that clearing your cache and running cron via the web interface vs drush's command line are two different beasts. In the latter case, cron goes into files that the web cron doesn't touch.
This caused problems for me because I hadn't set the base URL and I operate in a subdirectory (e.g., www.example.com/subdir is my homepage.) The problem arose around my gmap pages; the full story is here.
I suppose the moral is to set your Base URL in settings.php if you're working out of a subdirectory.
