Short correction: I was wrong. The substrate is connected to about -1V, 
so everything is fine in this regard.

It also dissipates 300mW peak at about 24mA collector current with a 
nice linear power dissipation ramp between the opamp output voltages 
-10V to -8V.

 From all heater schematics that I've seen so far the Prodigy seems to 
be the most solid.
