comment SPWeb.CurrentUser gives wrong result when called from HttpModule
Thanks for your input. Utils.siteAddress is actually a hard-coded URL, so I might switch to SPContext. I really appreciate the advice regarding the coding practices; I am still very much a SharePoint newbie. Going on a climbing trip for the extended weekend, so just FYI I won't have time to look at this again until Monday.

comment SPWeb.CurrentUser gives wrong result when called from HttpModule
I haven't got privileges for the test user in the Windows environment, but logging in as a different admin user gave the same results, ie. CurrentUser returned dev_admin.

comment Adding item to list view context menu
Ok, ended up pointing the custom action to an aspx page which reads the list item ID as an URL parameter and then forwards to the appropriate URL. Sort of hackish, but works well enough. Thanks for the tip about using SharePoint designer in SP2010, this makes everything a lot easier.

comment Adding item to list view context menu
Thanks, this is a step in the right direction. However, I still need access to the contents of the selected list item..just getting the item ID isn't sufficient. Specifically, I need the contents of the field "History". Do you from the top of your head know how to do this?

comment Content types vs. custom list field
Thanks, I hadn't considered search..but obviously that's a good reason to use content types.

comment Management of external users
Thanks. This is probably overkill (we have ~1000 users, ~200 of them external), but might be useful for future projects. The problem with using a different authentication provider for this usage scenario is that AD works really well and has a good API. I'm thinking that it's better to stick with AD unless you don't have another choice, seeing as it's what SharePoint was meant to work with in the first place.

Wonderful, the Bamboo Software management tool is exactly what I was looking for. I found a couple of other vendors, but they were all priced a lot higher than what we have available for this project.
