Well, the culprit was not the starter after all. Although this last adventure accentuated the starter as getting ready to fail, it's now in the middle of being rebuilt. The problem was the new cut-out relay (original style) that was installed two weeks ago. I should have expected this. It did exactly what it was designed "not" to do. The contacts stayed stuck together after the car was shut off, and drained the battery to nothing. Even jumping the battery with another wasn't enough to turn the starter over.
