I'm using biblatex 2.5 (from the \listfiles output on the Console) and biber 1.5 (from the biber output on the Console---you're using biber 1.4). We're both using latexmk 4.35 so that is one variable that is the same.

The biblatex package and biber are changing quite often are developed in parallel and are very sensitive to having the correct versions of both items so they work properly together. Thank goodness that recent versions have all worked properly with latexmk; early changes would kill latexmk's ability to detect that biber was to be used, etc.
