What material is the dropout made from? (I didn't see it referenced in the original post.) If you're riding a ti bike with 6-4 drops, they are very hard and quick releases - particularly less effectve light ones with light materials less effective cam - tend not to grip well.

Regardless, the best solution is to use the best no BS QR, which is Dura Ace. The older Record comes next, and everything else trails.

I will throw my 2 cents in. It is possible that the R45 hub 9mm fork tip interface (that bit that sits in the drop outs) is a bit longer than the other hubs you mentioned. If so the skewer may be contacting the hub before the face of the drop outs. Some skewers have an internal dome shape anticipating this very issue. I only bring this up because you mentioned movement on the front wheel and even bad skewers will not allow you to move the wheel in the drops simply with your hand. As for noise it is either the movement between the hub and drop outs or the external cam on the skewer is dry and needs lube. Let me know if this helps.

Threw in some Dura Ace QR and problem solved. Moved the Zipp QR's over to a wheelset with Dura Ace hubs and they seem to hold in that combination.
