Yay for false advertising....
So I went to GamersGate and I noticed that they have a selection of DRM-free games, or rather games listed as "DRM-free." So I buy a couple, "Cthulhu Saves the World," (which came with a free copy of "Breath of Death VII") and "Puzzle Quest: Challenge of the Warlords," and go to install them.
Turns out, they're not quite as DRM-free as I was led to believe... The games require an online installation and cannot be installed without an internet connection. Apparently the GamersGate folks erroneously believe this isn't DRM, despite the fact that it obviously is. While I'm going to be contacting at least Zeboyd about this issue (as indies tend to be more receptive), I thought I'd drop a line here warning anyone who hasn't used GG yet to be cautious as their DRM-free games still have DRM.
EDIT: Looks like I've got something of a happy ending, at least for Cthulhu and BoD. I shot an email at Robert Boyd, and he IMMEDIATELY gave me a couple of DRM-Free copies via Desura. Seriously, you can't get service better than that.
