Andrew, just a couple of other tips and suggestions to try: if you are sure of the last outlet that the dead circuits are fed from via a parallel daisy chain set up, then take the ends of the wire that you believe are feeding the dead outlet and switched outlet...and twist them together at the GOOD outlet end...then take the continuity tester and check for a continuous circuit at the end where the dead outlet was that will tell you if there is a break in one of the two lines or I would suspect the break to be either end of the run because of all the flexing that the connecting ends receive they can easily break inside the insulation where you cant see it...given enough extra wire at either end I would cut it back about 2 inches or so and strip the insulation off to attachh them to both outlets. and see if that might fix it.

Good luck to you and keep us posted on your trouble shooting results..
