Never mind...

I was forgetting to put a directory between Autoload and the Init file. 
Documentation isn't clear on this, and definitely neither Kernel nor  

FrontEnd requires it, but to use Autoload the file has to be

$BaseDirectory/Autoload/extraneousDirectoryForNoDiscernibleReason/Init.m

and not just

$BaseDirectory/Autoload/Init.m

Similarly with $UserBaseDirectory.
