At 10:37 EDT I opened MSE, went to the update tab, hit the Update button, AND IT WORKED!

This is consistent with MMPC (for you PA Bear <eg>) as I am typing this post. So the problem that was temporarily almost solved now appears to truly be solved (or at least it is working at the moment).
Let's hope this time it stays working and correctly and doesn't give any more undocumented definition versions and we can close the books on this one.
Good luck and I hope this time it's permanent.
