Well I've diagnosed my starter problem. I replaced the fried horn relay but the problem persisted. So I removed the starter and hooked the wires up to it outside the car. It operates fine, so the problem must be improper shimming.
I took the back plate off the starter to inspect the brushes - man I'm surprised that thing even turned with all the oil and crap that was inside. So I'm swapping out the starter too.
So if you're still having a starter run-on problem and have ruled out electrical problems like I have, it's got to be a shimming problem.
Hope this helps,
