Also, it has an impact on hop utilization, and I figure my hopping based on the wort gravity with the sugar in there. 

I tend to do the opposite here Denny and try to get more hop components into the unladen water
before I laden the water with additional sugar...

As long as that's how you calculate your hop additions, no problems.  I use Promash, which calcs things based on boil gravity, so I want the sugar in there.  In either case, I don't think it makes a huge difference.

Somehow still happens. Look over after chilling wort- sugar still there. :-\

...and I really hate when that happens. I've had it happen with hops before.
