I know this is a long shot, but could the starter bushings be worn, 
allowing the armature (along with the bendix drive) to shift enough to 
bind up the bendix engagement fork and not allow the solenoid to 
release?  There's not a lot else left to cause such an issue.

I had a starter do this once, swapped out the nose and it didn't do it 
again.  Of course I could have inadvertently "fixed" something else 
without my dumb ass knowing I'd done it, simply by taking it apart and 
putting it back together.

I do that a lot when something won't work right and I don't know why...
