I didn't know to see the 7.4 bit as a possible red flag.

In /usr/local/share/emacs, I have installed Emacs 24.0.50, including the 
bundled org-mode 7.4 release.

Into ~/elisp/org-mode I am nightly git pulling and making the latest 7.5 

I have been toggling between 7.4 and 7.5 latest—cleanly, I thought—by 
uncommenting or commenting the line
     (add-to-list 'load-path "~/elisp/org-mode/lisp/")

Is this enough to tell you what I've mixed up?
