Good lessons for us all.  In summary: (in no particular order)
1. Take nothing for granted.
2. Nothing is as simple as it seems, especially when we automate.
- corollary: Automation makes the mess happen faster, and digs the hole deeper
3. Every change is a BIG one, whether it be mic, band or venue.
4. Start at the beginning.
5. Like a dancer, always stay on your toes.
6. Listen to one's elders (OK, more experienced)
7. Don't be afraid to toss something and start over.
8. Always do a post mortem analysis - What changes? What was different? What worked? What Didn't?
9. If everything is going smoothly, one has obviously overlooked something.
Please feel free to add to the list.

The first half of any job takes 90% of the allocated time.  So does the second half.

As said before, makeup gain does not cause any more problems than just pushing the fader higher or having higher gain on preamp with accordingly higher threshold on comp. Also, if the feedback occured even while they were singing, it's probably not a problem with the comps as 'too much compression' would only cause feedback if the gain reduction would fade near the end of the release time, but not while the compressor is above threshold. This CAN happen, but certainly not at vocal levels where you struggle to get them out at a decent level at all.

Do you use the newest firmware and if so, did you group the vocal chanels?

Yes and no.
