My understanding is that the camera takes a
5-sec "dark frame" (just like it does when you have Noise Reduction
turned on) and then maps the 512 brightest pixels into the CCD
DEFECT table. So it doesn't matter if the lens cap is off or on
at that point.

Aah, wonderful. Thanks.

I didn't think to take a lens cap shot to test for hot pixels; I just relied on the remapping program to detect them (took almost 15 minutes too heh).
