I am still quite busy but I wanted to get this off for Karl to give 
him some food for thought.

OK look better. :) Compare the vov (yud) with the yod in the word 
m'reiyim (which is also elongated). Both are similar with a similar 
sharp down point to the left on top. This is commonly found in yods. 
The vov in the previous word has a top but it does not have the sharp 
down point. My vote is still that this yud is like the one two words 
earlier. Personally I think this scribe gets a C- for handwriting. :)
