A few weeks ago I changed my oil on my 99 Chevy Astro with 98000 miles. I start engine and everything is fine. Than a couple nights later I go to leave from my inlaws and the outside temp is 35 deg. and I hear this knocking on startup. My oil pressure is good and the knock goes away after 10-20 sec. The next couple days same thing happens. I'am thinking its the wrist pins or something else. Well I decided to start easy and change the filter again thinking it could probley be the oil filter. Well guess what? It is. Old filter was a ac delco 52 and new one is a wix. Problem solved.

Glad you figured it out quickly and inexpensively, also thanks for passing it along.

... of the ADB valve failure. Was the failure anything obvious one might see prior to installing?

I cut open 11 filters a week or so ago and will soon be posting some pics, but I was amazed at the way MOST of the anti-drain valves were designed (or not designed, just thrown in). Little thin rubber flaps, in one case against the bent fingers in the holes that held the base plate together.

I use wix filters in everything. I use the bitog sponsor http://www.fleetfilter.com check it out as the prices are very good.
