You know what? I just went out to the garage to measure every rear road wheel in there, and most of them are showing a >50% tension difference. TP-1 showing 23 DS and 14 NDS, probably the most common reading.

So this definitely means you don't have a spoke length issue. If the NDS spokes were too long, you wouldn't be able to tighten them any more, due to running out of threads. Also, with the same length on NDS and DS, the DS spokes would be the ones to be too long, not the NDS.
So, I think you've actually got a healthy wheel there. Did you get the DS tension up to 110kgf? If it's pretty even (<5% variance) all the way around the DS, I think you're good to go. Just make sure there aren't any wild variances on the NDS.
