Thanks Brion, you're exactly right.

For anyone else and the archives here's a small hint when upgrading: make
sure an errant copy of LocalSettings.php doesn't creep into the /config/
folder. That is what happened to me so when I ran the updater it quit
because it thought that the update had already been done.
