Sometimes shining a light on a nuclear problem just makes things worse

Solved by a stroke of sheer luck

A component was supposed to be impervious to light, but wasn't. You can't guess that that is the problem - something has to reveal it. Had "Dud" done literally anything else, they would not have found the root of the issue and we would be reading about a product failure - or likely not reading about it at all.
