I seem to recall from a distant memory that when you moved msdb and model, there was a particular sequence (one HAD to be done before the other). [Edit: here it is, smack in the middle of the link above].
I can't tell for certain from the steps you outline above which you did first.

As I recall, I usually make it a point to move msdb and model in separate steps (restarting SQL Server in between moving these two dbs).
Best of luck,

Have you hugged your backup today?
