Probably bad form to reply to myself, but it is, I think relevant.

I sat down to work on this problem some more this morning and was unable 
to log on to 'Silv'. Though it was working yesterday just fine (ie: I 
was able to log on, run a logon script, etc), today 'Silv' was showing 
all the same symptoms of  'Plaid'. I removed 'Silv' from the domain, and 
re-added it without incident. After a reboot, I was able to log in.

I've now gone from merely puzzled, to utterly confused.
