RE: EDP footpedal strangeness and a request for public testing

I did my tests with no vibration- cool unit- no static.

That's a good idea, perhaps vibration is causing false triggering on
the other switches. 

Another thought is that it might have something to do with static.
That's often a problem in carpeted areas especially in the wintertime
when heating equipment dries out the air. I've seen static do some
seriously strange things to electronic equipment from time to time.
