I hate to do this, but I forgot one minor detail about my hypothesis for

Have you tried protein sequencing?  If the mutation is in an area
reachable by Edmon degradation (either directly or from protease-cleaved
frags), then you could get a direct answer.

Also, a suppressor of this type might be very efficient in creating
expression havoc with other genes with UAG stops.  You could check the
sizes of their expressed products to look for increased MW.

Just a thought.......
