Since cloning disk "A" to disk "B" with a "backup all files" script I can no longer see the "Ignore ownership on this volume" checkbox when I do a Get Info on disk "B" and I can no longer select disk "B" in the "To" pop up when attempting to do a subsequent "newer" clone to it. Anyone know what's going on here?

It sounds like you're booted from "B", jwholder. You can't ignore ownership on a boot drive, nor can you select it as a copy destination...

It's always best when those things go together... ;)
