Addition: Hmm, I just tried it with the AUI<->10BT tranceiver plugged in
(wasn't plugged in before, hrrrm). The machine seems to be cycling power to
the AUI port, because the tranceiver's lights keep turning on and going
off, which should really be happening.

Could it be that I picked up a machine with a bad power supply? :\

Or is this something else?
