I'm not sure that is correct.

As I read it, Adam says that feeding the input of the 7805 with DC from 
his bench power supply results in flawless operation with no glitches, 
but that if he reconnects the transformer and powers it from mains, the 
glitching returns.

This seems to point the finger at either the transformer, bridge 
rectifier or smoothing cap (including associated solder joints), not 
exonerate them.

Adam, is that right?
