Coz otherwise it won't work, doh!   :-)

No, seriously, seems like solder flux is somewhat conductive, which
means that you'll get small leaking currnets through the flux between
points that should not be connected. That is Not Good. Granted, it's
not very big currents at all, but then again our ears are very
sensitive to very small differences in, say, pitch, so...
