Thanks for the follow up Doug.  I really appreciate the effort -- I'm
at witt's end here.

At this point I've got two sets of LVD/u160 cables ($$ ouch!), three
LVD terminators(!),
and lots of other random components that I've swapped back and forth
in endless combination.   I've tried my setup with and without my drive trays
(just in case they aren't compliant somehow).  I've had nightmares about strange
ground loop problems too (raid is in one box, cpu in another).
I've spent the past week going over this ground again and again.  (*sigh*)

I guess I'll wait until Monday and see if I can borrow some known good cables
and terminators from work.  I suppose its possible that I've found a bad
batch of one or the other.
