Why do my event-based DTM rules result in no custom link data going to Adobe Analytics?

I have a new Web Property and I added the Adobe Analytics tool via manual configuration.  I'm fairly confident that the Adobe Analytics tool is correctly configured as I'm seeing data for Visitors and other basic stats in Adobe Analytics Reports.

I have created a couple of event-based rules in DTM.

The rules trigger in response to clicks on certain DOM elements.  I have confirmed that the rules are triggering when expected by adding Javascript tags that make entires in the console.log().

I have added this type of Adobe Analytics configuration to each rule:

Using Chrome dev tools Network tab, at the time the rules are triggered, I am not seeing the browser load anything.  Furthermore, I'm not seeing any Custom Event data appear in Adobe Analytics Reports.

I've had a look at the logs in the global _satellite object created by DTM and I see only the expected messages about rules being triggered, but I don't see anything about Adobe Analytics.

Any ideas what might be wrong here or how I can further debug?  Am I right to expect the browser to load something from my reporting server hostname?  Any gotchas on configuration of the Adobe Analytics Tool to look out for?  Or maybe I'm overlooking some required value in the Rule configuration?

Let's back up a step here.  Create a simple page load rule and set an evar to a test value.  Let's make sure that Analytics car fire the beacon from your beta environment, and that we can see the beacon in a debugger of some flavor.
