Smelly 3560-8PC ?

I am trying to track down a srong chemical smell in my office, like overheating electronics. I noticed it when I came in this (Monday) morning. (Thanks to my colleagues who suggested it was me ;-)!

The only warm eqipment I could find is a 3560-8PC which is about 2 months old. But that does have a warning label that it can get hot. Anyway, I would have thought that any volatile components would have worn off by now. In any case, there are only two phones connected to it.

There is also a ton of other equipment plus 5 techie colleagues, so I suppose it could be anything. But I would like to track it down before it catches fire ... especially if it is one of the colleagues. ;-)

Has anyone any experience of odour-emitting 3560-8PCs?

Mystery solved. I had an old Fujitsu-Siemens PC running CiscoWorks in the corner of my office. We caught it just before it caught fire! ;-)

I guess it's time for a feature request, hopefully a MIB for smelly devices. not sure which severity level will be assigned :-)

Then the alarm would go off for all the 3750 stack cables, they truly stink when you get them out of the plastic wrappings, makes you wanna puke.
