Even though this is not exactly what you say it is intresting that they say that you have to reenter credentials. So I would go ahead and do that as a first step. As a second I would go ahead with the workaround that require uninstall and reinstall of SP4

We tried removing and reinstalling SP4.  No luck.
Have did not try to re-enter the credentials.  We are planning on trying that next.

We found a job that was failing with a bad pasword before we installed SP4.
We went back to SP3 and reset the credentials for that job and went back to SP4. No luck.
We went back to SP3 and deleted that job and went back to SP4. No luck.
We went back to SP3 and deleted all schedule jobs (only 5) and went back to SP4.  That worked.  
Now we just added the jobs back.
