CRT mold

Those monitors are suffering from a fungus or mold (are they the same?)
that is literally feeding off the laminate adhesive. One of the folks
here (I forget who it was) fixed a monitor with this problem by using a
heated wire to remove the protective outer laminate and replace it (or I
think he might've just left it that way) in order to "restore" the
monitor. He forced the wire between the CRT face and the protective outer
laminate to cut it off like a saw.

Bottom line: pain in the ass. No known us at least. I
wonder if anyone's every solved this problem, or if it's just one of those
things you have to live with?
