In device manager it is listed as MSM7x30 with a driver that is not recognized. Everything works as it should when not in Odin mode, e.g. I can type adb commands at the command line and get the proper responses. I reloaded the Samsung drivers and all four devices were loaded correctly according to the message.
I can't find it at the moment, but there was a thread somewhere (maybe here or XDA) talking about how you have to, basically, manually load up that driver through the control panel... once I had it all setup, I didn't have to worry about it again obviously, so I've forgotten exactly how that worked.
