[wp-hackers] update $wp_query->post->guid fails

The GUID field never changes. It's not the current permalink of the
post, it's a unique identifier for that post. If you make the post
somewhere and then import the post to a new place, the GUID field will
remain the same.

Yes, it's set to be a link to the post at the time of creation, but
it's not a "link", really. It's a unique identifier.
