Invested another round, updated the code and looked for the phony __utm.gif that is called with a bazillion parameters from the google-analytics.com domain... it loads from all the pages we tested.
REAL-TIME is running too, showing hundreds of active visitors on my domain. Yet the visits dashboard is empty... ZERO visits since the 15th of February... VERY strange!
