Run with the additional option
-sub_pc_factor_shift_type nonzero
does this resolve the problem. We changed the default behavior for ILU when it detects "zero" pivots.
Please let us know if this resolves the problem and we'll update the changes file.

However, when I updated it up to 3.7.6 I ended up running into issues with one of the KSP solves. The remainder of the code is identical,

The KSPView for each of the two are given below which are identical, up to small formatting changes. There is still more I can track down, but I thought I would ask if someone knows what might have changed between these two versions which could save me a lot of time.
