OK then, per my discussion above, I don't think its heat, (rotary exhausts
run at 2000 deg F) so what else is there?  I'll have to talk to someone
who knows this stuff.  FLow and velocity are possible culptrits, since the
sheer mass of airflow would possibly cause refernce gas contamination
earlier.  Maybe there's some thing else Eric's not telling us?
