Look at
function bootstrap_invoke_all($op) {
  foreach (module_list(FALSE, TRUE) as $module) {
    module_invoke($module, $op);

Sure looks to me like all modules get loaded in this scenario. And
bootstrap_invoke_all('init') in drupal_page_header() is going to call
every modules init function if it exists.

Ah. http://drupaldocs.org/api/4.5/function/hook_init
Perhaps something should be added to this to say don't use common.inc
functions either.
