The problem is the domain *did* expire. It was expired for about 6 
hours. I of course renewed it, which is reflective in the whois record. 
However, for some reason the .Org and/or Discount Domain Registry 
haven't released the client hold, although the did update the 
expiration. There is nothing I can do until morning at which time I will 
call them.

I will note that there were other oddities happening when this all went 
down. Jan and I both noticed that .info and .org were not returning 
whois records for a time. Don't know if it is related but who knows.
