Just one more point on this. If you are motoring around in the damp
cold stuff at about 41 degrees F, the A/C compressor will be running and 
everything will be fine until the temp drops to less than 40 degrees
F. Then the A/C big brother mode kicks in and turns off the
compressor. You may experience the exact same symptom as Kneale did
with a good recirc flap, BTDT. I would say that the exact conditions
for this to occur are infrequent, but that it really gets your
attention fast.
