This past weekend my AF-540FGZ flash overheated, melted and deformed its housing, and leaked clear fluid on the ground
Reading that creeped me out. Makes me not want to use my 540 ever again.

Long overdue. The Pentax flash system is very dated.
You are too kind. I would have said effing effing effing long.

Slowness can be excused when the performance is up to scratch, but when it is piss-poor, one might expect a reaction faster than 12 years.
