It turns out that if you pick multiple, unconnected surfaces for a single force to be applied, the full magnitude of the force is applied to EACH surface. So, in the case presented above, I inadvertently applied 16x the desired force when choosing to load through the bolt holes.
Thanks to the tech support guru Seth at 3DVision for solving that one.
The value of the force says (per entity) so it means it will apply that force to each entity you select.
