I finally had the chance today to pull the 1010 breakout box from the
rack and really open it up.  Turns out that under the flat black metal
strip screwed to the top of the daughterboard is a 2200uF 25v cap with
a bulging top and just a little brown ick on the top of it.

So on the one hand...  phew, I can fix this myself.  On the other hand
(there's a fist - obscure Jona Lewie reference), I'm disappointed I've
got to replace it after a relatively short period of ownership (3 years
or so).

Thanks to all on the list who helped out!
