Or you improved the connection to the TFI by pulling one out and putting
another one in.  As was pointed out to me, replacing the TFI and things
getting better doesn't necessarily prove the TFI itself was bad, it could
just be the connections.  Especially in your case, since the problem
wasn't related to excessive heat...
