Every time you (or anyone else) visits a Drupal page, Drupal starts up
again from scratch and loads all the files it needs to load. So unless
your page, block, etc. that is triggering the require_once() is
cached, your file should get included on every page load.
You might consider blowing out all the Drupal caches, to make sure
that is not the problem.
