Positions of four of the unexplained streak artifacts that SXT
has experienced. At the W limb, 18-may-96 and 14-apr-93. Note that
the same columns are involved. The 18-may glitch also appeared in
pixels at lower row number than the 14-apr-93 glitch.  At the E
limb, 25-jul-96 (above) and 12-dec-96 (below). The image the positions
are superposed onto is an arbitrary recent SFD. Note however the
new-cycle region at the SW limb. Perhaps the butterfly effect will
help us to stave off glitches in the future, as more and more
active regions appear at higher latitudes.
