I played around with this and was able to correct the problem even  
though I'm still not sure exactly what was wrong.

There was a minor discrepancy in the column width on the Right/Left  
master pages and this, combined with balance columns being turned on,  
resulted in the problem. Unfortunately, fixing the column widths  
didn't fix it but turning column balance off did. Since column  
balance is essential to the files,  I ended up rebuilding the  
template with correct column widths and column balance ON and  
importing Page Layouts and Doc Properties into the files.

I still don't know why importing corrects it when making those same  
changes in an individual file doesn't but hey, at least it's working  

Thanks to all who responded -
