Some more info: the issue persists after running a clean installation and importing the database, so it is likely a database issue.

Considering I don't have that many posts, or any attachments, I'm not averse to starting over from scratch. That's probably what I'll do, if I can't resolve this.

I use Apache virtual hosts for my configuration; does this still pertain to me? I don't believe I noticed any sort of .htaccess file in my site directory.

just because you don't see the .htaccess file does not mean it is not there.
some ftp programs and some servers by default, do not show dot files in the directory listings.

There’s usually an option to “show hidden files” in FTP clients and OSs.
