Why do I always get horrible IT-Band Tendonitis? How do you deal with it?

And how can I get rid of it quickly and get back on the bile?
I've been getting ITB Tendonitis all my life. I'm a reasonably active cyclist/mtb'er (4-5 days/wk). I get it regardless of how much or how little I ride. I've had it before I started riding. I probably get it once a quarter or so.
Often the pain comes right before a drop in temperature. I can't put my finger on a direct 'cause'. I wear orthotics, I usually stretch before and after riding, I try and ice my knee (where the tendonitis hurts), take ibuprofen, do the 'Walt Reynolds' stretch, etc. What gives?
