I haven't followed all of the discussion*, however, you are aware  
that the standard \include command will always start on a new  
righthand page? That is the standard \include command, not your  
renewed version I quoted in the footnote, which frankly doesn't make  
sense to me at all.

The \input command allows you to insert the contents of a document  
without messing with page breaks. \includeonly doesn't work with that  
though. The whole reason to start an \include on a new page _is_ the  
\includeonly business, but I digress. \include is _only_ meant for  
chapters, where you probably _want_ to start on a new page.


* one thing I did notice was a \renewcommand{\include}[1][]{\url} in  
the main file, which I really don't understand, but I guess you have  
your reasons to do that.
