The drywall is about 4" over old plaster & lathe (it's a prewar bldg), and the "odd stud" I'm looking at I only found because there's an outlet box attached to it. I'm going to remove the box tomorrow (yes i'll turn off the breaker here first!) and try to peak inside the wall, instead of continuing my comically unsuccessful tap-test that has resulted in four useless holes in my once beautiful wall... thanks again :)

Ah, "the float" -- that's what it's called. That's my concern too. Guess I'll keep looking for the studs the drywall is mounted on, they're in there somewhere!
