I've been taking the kinder-gentler approach, and had hoped to not have to disassemble things, but if it hasn't gotten better by this evening, I'll remove the brakes, see if I can get the wedge out, and see if I can bump the stem out that way. For really stubborn stems, Barnett's (chap 28) recommends clamping the fork in a vise. Right before the discussion on what you're willing to sacrifice, fork, stem, or both.
