If you're looking at event metrics in a custom report, when could you have 4,614 unique visitors but only 110 visits? This report is not sampling and no segments are applied. The event has fired 21,777 times, and I'm trying to get at an average number of times it fires per visit.

Custom report information:
Dimensions: Event Category, Page
Metrics include: Pageviews, Unique Visitors, Total Events, and Visits

Allen, in answer to your Google Analytics question, I think you need to use an advanced filter on the Request URI. You can go here in the documentation to get started: http://support.google.com/analytics/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=1034823 There is also a really useful hint on the Admin > Profiles Tag > Filters Tag select the "custom filter" radio button, then the "Search and Replace" radio button then the yellow help icon.

Sean, For cross-domain tracking in Google Analytics you also have to set up a profile with a filter to append the full domain onto the Request URI. After that the Pages dimension will show the full URL. So the difference will be particularly noticeable on the Content > Site Content > Pages report and any other reports with that dimension. You can read about implementation here: http://support.google.com/analytics/bin/static.py?hl=en&topic=1033979&guide=1034143&page=guide.cs
This article explains how to customize your tracking setup in order to track completely separate, top-level domains as one entity. It uses two top-level (dummy) domains for illustration purposes www.m...

Yes, it is possible to get geographic e-commerce data without the use of the API. Make a custom report with the following dimension drill-downs: Continent, Country/Territory, Region, City, then go under Conversions in the metrics category to find e-commerce numbers.
