I know that a trade of a like security in a tax advantaged retirement account within 30 days of a losing trade in a taxable account may require that I pay taxes on gains in the tax-advantaged account & possibly interest & penalties.
Well, that's news to me. The situation you describe results in a wash sale and nothing else.
Do my accumulated short-term capital loss carryovers from previous years disappear when I switch from Schedule D to MTM?
No. You continue to use them as before on Schedule D.
