Thanks Jay-  I checked all shower heads and sinks, nothing showed up there, but, we found some "other style" shower mixing cartridges other than the Delta 1600's that I stated above.  We replaced those cartridges as potenial culprits and it worked...no cross flow problems any more.  The cartridges we replaced were Delta 1300/1400 series, which I heard from a plumber are notorious for cross flow when they go bad.  Thanks for your help!
