Well, this was not certainly old habits, I have very inate
(unatural) strong intinitive (6th sense) of noticing something is
amiss and fix by anormal manner.

When I come across any equipment that is years or 1 year old, scraped
the flux, it came off like 3 days old icing in clumps and bit sticky.
When scraping the freshly, seconds old, soldered joint with too much
flux, chips and shatters like a glass.

So, still wants to know.
