    Sadly, that didn't seem to be the case with this little
device.  I took it down to its component boards this evening
(with more than a little bit of help from Messrs. Primus and
Fogg) and reassembled it -- with no change in symptoms.  I
may take it down again (it's got a couple of missing screws
at the moment, so it'll be easier next time ;-) ) just to
see if there's something I missed, but just wanted to pass
along my thanks for the assistance and support.
