The problem of leakage is certainly not limited to this stuff. Back when
I was making PC boards, I made some boards for a company, and they told
me they were no good. So I took a trip up to their place (very nice
nice, a couple of hundred yards from the Pacific Ocean.) These were high
impedance circuits, and IIRC most didn't work. I had already made *sure*
the boards were clean when they were sent since this was a new customer
and the second time it happend. Some of you already know the answer by
now ... the salty air from the Paficic created the problem.
