Oops
As I was setting up the number 4 form, I noticed that the bottom (the top actually, but the forms are currently upside-down) of the form was hanging up on the form block -- not a lot, but just enough that the form was rocking back and forth a bit. I determined that I had made an error when transfering the design waterline to the form -- I was about 1/16" out on one side.

I corrected the problem by first removing the form extensions, then placed the form over the plans and drew a new waterline. After replacing the form on the form block, it no longer wobbled.
