Default I-94 expiring before H1-B Extension in TARP company

My company has taken TARP money and therefore has all the restrictions on H1-Bs. Company H1-B extensions will now have to go through some extra evaluations and approvals.

My H1-B is expiring in August 2009 and my I-94 is expiring in May 2009 (my old passport was expiring then. I have a new passport now though). Our lawyer was planning to apply for H1-B extension in March but now is finding it tough getting the approvals for doing the same.

I am not sure what to do now. Should I just wait and take a risk or...

1) Should I go out of the country and get a new I-94? I do not have VISA Stamping in my passport and will have to go for Visa Stamping as well? Some of my friends are scaring me saying it is not a good time to go for stamping and that too when you only have about 5 more months on H1-B and from a tarp company.
2) Can I apply for I-94 extension from within USA? In that case will I have to wait for my I-94 to be extended before applying for my H1-B extension?
3) For preparing for the worst case, can I apply for a H1-B transfer with some other company and continue working on my current H1-B. If there is any problem jump onto the newly transfered H1-B?

Please provide your valuable suggestions. Thanks in advance.
