what are the chances that the wordtracker/overture/adwords keyword frequency
figures are based almost entirely on SEO people constantly checking their
own serps for SEO related phrases?

I'd say there is a good chance that seo related stats are worthless.

I did sign up once for the freebie weekly listing, through
wordtracker's site,  of "top 500" search terms people used at various
search engines. It can be sometimes be interesting to skim through.

I can't comment about the other two since I don't use them at all.

I've thought about this myself - a group of people all "possessed" by a
search term constantly checking it. My logs to to suggest I am the main
searcher - "real" searchers seem get to your site by the most unusual search
terms and methods. A lot of search info is blocked these days anyway.

The moral of this story I think is to make your site as fully informative as
possible - that way when soemone does do a search there is a better chance
that your site is in there somewhere
