Okay, so that eliminates the transformer, the diode bridge and the
smoothing cap, and possibly the loading of the bench PSU would affect
any runaway oscillation in the 7805.  You have confirmed with your
sillyscope that the power supply is not in broad-band shortwave
transmitter mode?

Intermittent shorted turns?  Oh yes, it's a distinct possibility.
