Things get even stranger using Luis Abreu's code posted above. (I can post full code for anyone curious enough to try and replicate my issue)
updatepanel contents are visibile on page load,
during callback, updatepanel is collapsed while updateprogress template is visible(so far so good)
after updateprogress collapses, updatepanel never becomes visible again
updateprogress continues to work just fine.
I've checked with fiddler and viewing source from browser and must admit, I'm way over my head in trying to understand the why.
Thank you both for the help.
