Awe inspiringly useful.  Fabulous.  Finally, a clear and complete
explanation of all sorts of nonsense we're seeing, including the heating
of the neutral wire (which I had just barely figured out on my own from
other comments on the list).

Just goes to prove that there is ALWAYS something else important to
learn about cluster engineering.

This link will have to go on all my cluster pages and into my online
book, which is obviously woefully inadequate in its already fairly
long-winded description of cluster infrastructure (power/AC).

Thank you (x1000),
