Fedora11 (I haven't quite gotten used to Texlive) and it turned out to have
an hopelessly dated version of url.sty. Updating that made biblatex 0.8 to
work and processing my document with it rendered the correct bibliography.

Now the fact that the document worked on another machine under biblatex 0.7
and under my current machine with biblatex 0.8 makes me suspect it had
something to do with a corrupt style file as Torsten suggested. Well, I'm
not going to experiment more with it now that it works!

Thanks for all the help!
