Okay, I've still got a lot to learn both about music and Lilypond, so
maybe my assumptions are incorrect. But, I have a simple file that looks
like this:

\include ""

\score {
 \notes {
       \clef violin
       \key c \major
g a' b' c' d' e' f' g' a'' b'' c'' d'' e'' f'' g''

I'm expecting this to just be an increasing scale, but it ends up looking
like this:

This is correct. Octaves start on a C. C to B is in one octave. C' to B' is the next octave. A' is in the next octave above G. B is the half below C'.

You may have wanted:

g a b c' d' e' f' g' a' c'' d'' e'' f'' g''

I could have sworn I used the same thing on an older install, so is
something broken or is it just my head?

The only other possibility I know of is \notes\relative <note-name> which has a different set of rules.

If it is in fact supposed to look like this, is there a way to always use
a specific note, like a'' will always be x octave?

That is the way it is. a'' will always be on the first leger line above the treble clef and middle C will always be c' *unless* you use \notes\relative or \transpose in which case the rules are different.
