How does it even know my query, though? I'm looking at the documentation
here: http://drupaldocs.org/api/4.6/function/theme_pager
and I don't even see that the query is known to the function. I'm using
the function pager_query() to actually execute my query. I looked at the
released version of node.module, and tried to do things the same way. But
I've overlooked something, clearly.

Thanks for your reply, and I'm sorry if I'm being dense. I've not used this
set of functions before.
