Since I had the tub reglazed they said that standing water is a no no and can cause the glazing to bubble.

Are you sure this wasn't just for some period of time - maybe a few days to a month - to let the glazing fully cure? It seems strange to me that a coating used in a bathtub would be so badly affected by water. Did they give you some time limit on baths? That's basically standing water, too. ;-)

Is there something I can use to treat the liner to get it back to shedding water again?

I'm just guessing here. Maybe some scotchguard - the spray on stuff they usually plug for furniture. I think it has some waterproofing as one of its properties. A small can isn't that expensive and I'd think it would cover a shower curtain 2 or 3 times.
