I don't have time to try your files for the moment, but here are a  
couple of general observations for now:

- In tables I've found at times \tabularnewline to be more robust  
than \\.

- Rather than LaTeX's \\[vertical-skip], I've occasionally found that  
TeX's \noalign primitive works more reliably. Namely, replace



	\\ \noalign{\vspace{15pt}}

- As a last resort, for example when you want to interrupt a vertical  
rule in a table, you may use TeX's \omit primitive, as in, for a 4- 
column table,

	\omit\vrule height15pt\hfil & \omit & \omit & \omit \\

(I'm not sure the \hfil is necessary here, I'm pasting this from an  
old document of mine.)

I'll try to look at your examples tonight. Don't hold your breath
