Has anyone compared "Benny Lopez" (syn "Mystery Santa Barbara Rose") with "Old Town Novato" (syn "Jay's Hudson Perpetual")

I doubt it. I think some CA gardeners grow both and would surely have noticed if the two cultivars were the same.

I have not seen tall arching growth nor does my plant sucker so far.

I don't grow either, but I'm noticing some similarities between this rose and the rose currently being grown as 'Rembrandt' (not the original). Has anyone else made the comparisons?

This rose produces very beautiful, highly-fragrant flowers. However, it gets a lot of rust in my garden.

That's great feedback about the rose, Melissa (or is it Tessie?). It's sad to hear that it rusts for you though. Where do you live and in what CZ? Other information about its siting, whether you spray or not, etc. would be helpful for others since this rose is still a "mystery" rose with no history yet on how it performs in gardens in different parts of the country. Thanks for sharing your information!

Benny Lopez frequently reminds me of Phil's Hot Pink Perpetual, particularly the rust part. Take a look at these.

You can see how they can resemble each other, making written descriptions very difficult to use to differentiate between similar roses.
