Ah hah, I believe I tracked it down to enabling the following new setting:

idp.encryption.config = shibboleth.EncryptionConfiguration.GCM

After I commented this out all of the ones that were failing started working again. Evidently what they all had in common is presumably not supporting this newer encryption algorithm 8-/. Perhaps the config file should have a warning that enabling it will potentially cause a lot of breakage :).

Sorry for the noise...
