I'm glad someone else doesn't know whats going on. Feel a little better about being completely confused.
Yes, 1.08. I found a thread on xda of someone describing the same problem but no one offered fixes there either. I spent a little time looking for one of the older versions, but, alas, google and the internet can be unforgiving some times.

Uninstall .08, install this one (.06) and let me know what happens.
BTW, stay away from .07 it had a bug ;-)
TEAM MAVERICK FTW
I'm going to try rebooting, but it looks like the exact same thing happened using 1.06. So, obviously, its something with my phone, but I figured reflashing to factory would get rid of any problems from rooting incorrectly, or any other unknowns....
Couple of the more obscur issues to check:
- Make sure you have a full sized busybox on the system. I try and include on in the Safestrap package, but if you already have one installed and it doesn't have the rar/zip applets, there can be issues. <<- this sounds like your issue.
- Root Keepers can cause some issues. Not really anything specific unfortunately on this one.
- Guidot already covered the su / Superuser oddity. But normally this shows up as the Safestrap Installer FCing out, and it doesn't sound like that's happening.
- There *might* be an install.txt file in the /data/com.hashcode.droid3safestrap folder or under one of it's subfolders. If you get that can you email it to me: email@example.com
Just some notes off the top of my head.
