Good thought, but the weather has been bone dry.  Today it's 100F in the equipment area with a RH of about 10%.  I'm in shorts & t-shirt and the sweat is evaporating as fast as it comes out :-)

I am beginning to suspect thermal shutdown on a linear regulator.  As the temperature has climbed I am seeing the problem with greater regularity.  I need to get back to my office to look at the gumstix schematics to find places to probe the 3.3V supplies.

Thanks for helping with the brainstorming!

easy, but what about dewpoint?  Is condensation an issue?  (I don't
know much about environmental effects on electronics.)
