I had suspected that it was the shortened form of the causative-passive, and I finally confirmed that at Tae Kim's (who's method to think, insofar as one can, as a native speaker of a language might I heartily endorse incidentally) website. The keys are to stay attentive to the final verb form and not to be intimidated but follow the particles to their functional conclusion.
