Possible Plot Hole

This may've been thoroughly discussed by now, and if it has been I'd greatly appreciate being referred to the appropriate thread, but I came across what I believe to be a very serious plot hole the other day.

There are two givens. Harry is horcrux. Basilisk fangs can be used to destroy horcruxes.

However, in Chamber of Secretes Harry is bit by a Basilisk. He is able to survive the venom that would kill any person (Horcrux or not) because of the pheonix, but it seems to me that Harry, or at least the Horcrux inside Harry, should've died instantly because of this.

What do all you HP experts think?

I think, if nothing else, this questions how pre-determined the plot of the series as a whole actually was as compared to Rowling's claims.
