You know, I have long argued that this stuff decomposed over time,
but I never got any hard evidence on this. All I know is, that when
I worked for FLUKE in the early 80's, it was SOP to remove all traces
of flux from assemblies after they were repaired. The metrology guys
figured it helped long-term repeatability and drift.

Old habits are hard to break.
