I think I figured out the problem - it was a db issue. TINYINT(4) for the id, for some reason would not allow for any ids to be added to the database above 127. The error said "entry out of range - entry adjusted" or something to that affect. Even when I entered the info directly into phpMyAdmin, it would not auto-increment to 128, and instead change the id to 127, so I had multiple 127 entries. I changed the column type to INT(10) and all seems good with the world.
