Good questions...here's what I know:

Or does it require a some type of refresh process? I noticed that when I cleaned up all of the 'Alaska' segments, 'Alaska' disappeared from the dropdown list. But today it's back in the list, even though I can't find an 'Alaska' segment in the area.
I'm not sure what causes them to disappear temporarily. My guess is that you had zoomed in on a slightly different location, and so although you had removed all the Alaska segments on the first view, the second view included some different off-screen segments, at least one of which was set to "Alaska".
2) What drives the city names being overlaid on the map? I noticed today that I have "Denton" showing up in 4 different locations over the Denton area. A couple of these correspond with locations where there were 'Denton, AL' or 'Denton, Other' segments yesterday. They're all correct today, but the city names are still displaying (not actually sure they were there yesterday).
Yes, if there are four Dentons on the map, that means that Denton segments associated with four different states (or other) exist on the map. After you fix them, the extra Dentons will disappear eventually.
3) I have one segment still floating around out there with a blank city and a state of 'Other'. It's only a 80 meter segment, so even with I select it with the Papyrus extension tool, it's hard to locate it on the map. Are there any tricks for finding this little segment? I've been scrolling around the map, but it seems to be an elusive one.
Sometimes it's tricky. Is this a segment that you need to locate in order to add the right city/state? If it's so short that you can't find it on the map--and I'm assuming it's unnamed or you'd be able to find it using another source--you can probably check "no city" for it without causing any problems.
4) Finally, is there a known issue with not being able to update segments selected by the Papyrus extension? If I use the extension to select segments, whenever I update the data on the Properties panel, it just reloads the map but doesn't make any changes. If I manually select the segments, I don't have any issues making updates. I'm using Chrome for my browser.
