Hmm.  But I bought the H8-4 a long time after I bought the H-8.  (Actually,
I don't think the H8-4 was available initially.)  So had H8-4 production
stopped before any of the "new" 8250s could have been shipped?  It seems
too much of a conicidence that I had 3 out of 4 bad 8250s for some other
random reson(s)...
