"The data source control failed to execute the insert (or update) command", or How to Make Your Workday a Bit Shorter

Custom list.  Custom New/Edit/View forms.  Everything works perfectly... until the latest round of updates.

Now if you Bingle this error message, you'll get about twenty possible causes that run the gamut from a known bug, an unknown bug, and fixed/not fixed/hotfixed/workaround bug, all the way to corrupt content types and invalid form data.

In my case, however, it turned out to be a misspelled column name in a FormField control.

I'm just glad it's Friday.
