So the optima battery, installed about a year ago, now has a high- 
resistance cell.  Discharing it with the headlights, rear defroster, cell became rather hot while the rest of the battery stayed  
cool.  Whups.

Should be under warranty so I'm not terribly bothered, but has anyone  
else have problems like this?  According to Optima customer service  
(via the barcode on the side of the battery) it was made in July of
