Take a look at:
The first shows the "Z1" socket in the background with the fuzzy loop in the 
foreground. The second shows the heat fin & loop in the foregraound with the 
socket in the background.  The loop is supposed to be in the Z1 socket.

Based on the responses I've received it seems that this is a fairly common 
failure due to a design flaw.  I got the usual "that's strange; nobody else 
is having this problem" from Cisco.  I now have ample justification for 
telling them "bull".

Thanks everybody.
