I solves my own problem, but should post the resolution so others  
don't pull out their hair and become as bald as I am.

Suddenly, without provocation or warning, both of my D11 boxes  
suddenly like to talk at 9600 baud. It was working at 115200 baud for  
months and now it doesn't. It caused my recorders to fail - just  
sometimes. Anyway, changing the script to 9600 baud made everything  
very happy again. Huzzah!
