I never verified this information but, I was once told by an electrician that the MOVs in surge protectors can in some circumstances leak voltage on to the ground, causing GFCIs to trip.
I've heard that the typical surge protector will not protect you from a lightning strike because it is too slow to react. By the time the surge protector trips, the lightning has done its damage.
To follow up on this topic, I finally bought and installed the aforementioned Trip-Lite unit in my rack. It helped clean things up in the rack a bit though, because of the length of most of my in-rack cables, it's still more of a mess than I'd like.
