Roman, you are almost certainly correct.   Thank you for your excellent 
summary of PD dropouts and how to avoid them, and for clarifying my 
less-than-accurate description of one cause of them.

I think your post (the one previous to this one, the "dropout summary") 
should be in PDPedia under "audio dropouts."
