While I was ready to embrace the theory that the attached streamers were
responsible for adding to Ctop, the point raised that the streamers only
occur _after_ ringup pretty much discredited that in my mind.

Instead, what ever became of the theory that, in operation, an ion cloud
with a persistence greater than the bang interval, exists about the top 
terminal, effectively increasing it's size and capacitance?  Seems to fit.
