  I'll put it inside of an init hook, but this strikes me as peculiar. I 
can confirm that the taxonomy exists and has been registered right above 
the post type registration via get_taxonomy('category')...

(I write this from Rhode Island, where it's 95 degrees, and my AC died 
today, so it's quite possible my brain has simply melted :-P )
