EPC on 3560 running 15.0(2)SE7 - If I had hair I'd pull it out!

I'm having a "Falling Down" moment with EPC.  Here's my config and CLI output (see below).  As you can see, traffic is ingress on Fa0/45 ('show interface' counters are incrementing).  I'm allegedly capturing packets ingress on Fa0/45.  However, the packet counter is not incrementing on my buffer associated with the Fa0/45 capture.  I'm pretty confident that this is CEF-switched traffic.  What am I doing wrong?  This is driving me nuts.  The only EPC I've been able to get working on this switch has been a process-switched capture.  What I'm trying to do is capture traffic traversing the switch from a workstation (connected on Fa0/45) to a router (connected on Fa0/1) in that one direction (WKSTN -> Fa0/45 -> Fa0/1 -> Router).  The EPC I created on the router is working BTW.  Is this a case of EPC not working as advertised on the switch?

I think I might have an

I think I might have an answer to my own question.   There's no cef switching or process switching going on because the traffic is forwarded at layer 2 (fa0/45 is an access port and fa0/1 is a trunk port).  Does EPC only work on packets that are routed?
