[sdiy] VCO that goes SHARP in highest octaves??

Hello Neil,

Are you sure the problem is in the higher octaves, didn't you compensate 
for a problem on the low end resulting in the oscillator going sharp in 
the higher octaves? I had this twice with a Jupiter-8 oscillator, once 
it was caused by flux and the other time by a leaky FET.
