Possible Resolution to Technorati Update Problem

Up until about an hour ago, Technorati refused to update its database of postings to DLTJ, and having reached the 31-day point of no updates I was starting to wonder what to do about it. I came up with two theories for which I put in fixes to the configuration and theme setup of DLTJ, but in the end I’m not sure if either definitively provides a solution for anyone else in the same situation. In the spirit of helping out one’s neighbors, though, here are the theories and fixes. DLTJ is a standalone (e.g. not hosted) WordPress 2.0.4 installation, so YMMV.
