I have had some of the same obstinate behavior by gate agents refusing or at least not wanting to add me to the upgrade queue. I had a funny one the other day. I was taking a 2pm flight and stood in line for standby on an 8am flight that had been delayed for like 4+ hours but was still very likely going to get me in earlier. I did end up making the change, for which I received 5,000 miles for my trouble! I guess it was just broad compensation for passengers and the program didn't opt out on folks that chose to take that flight. Chalk one up for the good guys...
