I never use an adaptive amount of 1 - it often leads to artifacts. I've seen vlado say that it's a bad idea to set it to 1.0 as well, probably for that reason. 0.95 is fine but 1.0 will probably get you issues

if I use the Nederhorst (BF/LC) workflow, I generally use 0.9 adaptive, 1 min subdivs, 25-30 max subdivs, 0.06 threshold. That's probably too slow for animation but I do it for illustrations. I use IM/LC sometimes for cleaner vis stuff.

I suggest you lower the AA min to 1 and lower the AA threshold to something like 0.01 and below - you're tracing a lot of extra rays (the 2 min setting) for nothing and actually getting more noise than you should (the 0.6 AA DMC setting).
