"The rotation when you ollie is the rocker board revealing a flaw in your technique."
Does it come down to my weight not being centered on the front binding when I crouch? I really don't think the rear binding has much to do with it, could it?

Rossignol already has been mentioned; in addition, Jones, Yes, and Nidecker.

Default nitro gullwing

I have no experience with other reverse cambered boards, but my nitro subpop feels as stable as any cambered board I tried, which is surprising since its such a soft, flexible light boards.

Capita Black Snowboard of Death 2011 is camber between bindings and early rise nose and tail. Mind you, this is an all-mountain stick, less freestyle oriented.

Do you recommend the early rise nose and tail for Northeast manmade ice with only occasional powder? Will a true cambered board like the Ride DH have a tendency to catch edges in such conditions?

I ride in the East and already prefer my hybrid camber DH2.4 to my camber Decade for precisely that reason. But look, the catchiness of pure camber is not something that can't be overcome with due care. When that's all there was to ride, people managed well enough. We're not talking about an enormous difference.

I'm thinking that I want to gain the experience of riding a pure cambered board. I learned on soft cambered rental boards and while I noticed their tendency to catch edges when transitioning from toe to heal, I still felt much more controlled than I do on my 2010 custom v rocker. I'm getting used to it and don't regret buying it, but something tells me to pick up a pure cambered now and wait on the hybrids for a few years.

I bought this year's DH 157. First and foremost, this is an outstanding freestyle stick. Every time I go to the park I come back home with an ear to ear grin. On top of that, it is great for groomers, speed, drops, ice and handles powder to boot.

But, you can't be sloppy with your snowboarding technique anywhere on the mountain since it isn't forgiving. On the flipside, this unforgivingness will make you learn proper riding technique - otherwise it will beat you up (not just in terms of falling over but you'll waste a lot of your energy).

With out seeing you the best guess I could make is that you are rotating your shoulders forward when you lean back to pop and that is causing a frontside rotation. It doesn't show on a cambered board because the tail's edges will dig in to stop the rotation. Make sure you are going strait back with your weight.
