Using one of Scott Mockry's test leads, it's easy to see that the WGFV is
only used at WOT.  From that point onwards, the ECU effectively has total
control over boost.

Yes, but we need a car that can generate the symptoms.  This has been our
problem recently - we seem able to make the problem go away just by checking
all the components.  The MB's control mechanisms are fundamentally _identical_
to the MC-2's.
