Talked with Nikon, got some answers.

1) They are aware that some cards have trouble, and are not concerned about it, except for cards on their approved list. Their sense is that the camera pushes the limit on speed so requires exacting performance from the cards.

2) If any card on the approved list has trouble, they most definitely want to hear about it.

None of this is particularly surprising.

So... I just sprang for a pair of Lexar 1000x 32GB CF cards on the current $250 (per pair) deal at B&H. That's a nice price, and those appear to be by far the best/fastest cards for continuous shooting.

Thanks everyone for the feedback and input!

My wife can't wait to start shooting birds in flight with her new D800e+ 80-400... ought to be perfect for an Africa trip

I'm having hourglass hangups; using Lexar 1000x 32GB CF as primary and SanDisk Extreme Pro 95MB/s 16GB SD as overflow.  NEF only.  D800 is just a couple weeks old.  Three hangups so far.
