apologies if someone else has already dealt with this one ...

The real answer to the original question is *no* the ISV cannot affect 
the mixture in any way.  Since the ISV does not admit unmetered air to
the intake tract it cannot affect the mixture.  As its name would indicate
it can affect the idle speed when it screws up.
