Someone just reminded me that I never finished telling the story.

The final result here is that a second replacement board was installed,
and things have run fine ever since.

So, the moral is that subtle hardware problems can cause OW to fail
when everything else works. Nothing will cause me to pull my hair out
faster than subtle hardware problems :-)
