Just curious, what was the 5065A acting like with the bad diode?  Mine seems
to run quietly for days at a time, but then occasionally it generates excess
low-level random noise for a period of hours to days (see image).  Every
time I've tried to get serious about tracking the problem down, it stops
misbehaving.  Did yours look like this?

A Heisenbug. Observing it affects the outcome.
