Negative regulators like the 7905 are more fragile and persnickety than
positive regulators like the 7805. The rules and application notes about
positive regulators don't quite apply to negative regulators. Or rather,
there are *additional* problems for negative regulators that aren't
covered in the notes on positive regulators. So, they seem to have
higher failure rates.
