I poked at it for an hour or so this morning, without any luck.
(Suggestions for good tools to investigate this kind or problem most
eagerly solicited.)

I had thought that my caching infrastructure was the culprit, but
turning that off had no effect. Now I wonder if the underlying
architecture of the pipes between steps is the problem. A little
instrumentation didn't make that obviously the case, but that doesn't
mean it isn't. And the time's up for today :-(
