Yep, went through the process of cycling power on the various devices.
 All the wiring on each floor go to a single closet per floor where
the switches are located.  I still get the same behavior.

 Lightning is just not good news ever and can make strange things
happen. I tend to think that the CatVe that was installed wasn't
installed right (low bid, etc) and is thus marginal for some of the
rooms.  I'll have to test the actual links over the summer (school has
1 more week of classes).  Until I can do this to rule out cabling I
have ran some long patch cables in the rooms and dropped in some
8-port gigabit switches in these locations.  That seems to have
corrected the issue when everything else didn't.  So ... bad wiring in
the walls? The switches aren't showing any errors in their logs though
... oh well, end of year gremlins.
