Well, I hate to say this Kevin but I cannot answer any of those questions. 
I can however offer this.  They are now working for me too.  I went to my 
registrar and deleted one of my secondaries and saved the changes and things 
work fine now.  I am going through all my domains now and resaving the 
current settings (a little slower now than I did when preparing for the 
change in IP address).  So, hopefully that will solve any lingering problems 
that users have not told me about yet.
