Comment (by hallcp):

 Yes, disabling plugins and using the default theme doesn't change
 anything. I was unable to follow the program logic, but I would call your
 attention to these two lines added in update.php with the 4.1 update (as
 mentioned in my original bug description). There were two direct calls

  wp_update_plugins();         Line 521(?) of update.php
  wp_update_themes();          Line 531(?) of update.php

 These two lines appear to me to bypass the timed update checks. They were
 not present before.
 I got the feeling that the legitimate calls to update came via the
 "_maybe_update_plugins" and "_maybe_update_themes" actions, which do
 appear to check the time and only "maybe" fire off an update.

 Just a guess, but it smells like the problem to me! Thanks for looking
 into this one.
