the same type of capacitor across the line input.

As have I, in my Farnell 60A bench supply it took several weeks before 
the leakage was enough to show itself as a "real" fault but not before 
nuisance tripping the house rccd about a hundred times before I 
confirmed what device had actually failed.

It *always* seemed to occur when my wife was using the smoothing iron or 
the uWave oven - it took a while to realise that was just the 
opportunity for me to escape to the radios ;-)
