I stand corrected.  Maybe it was prior release versions where I 
experienced this issue.  I have a patch in the issue queue for breaking 
out module_list to module_list_all and module_list_bootstrap because 
bootstrap calls module_list twice and pulls from the DB twice with 
$refresh set to TRUE.  Reference http://drupal.org/node/116820 for more 
information on that.
