@ circuit: Thank you for your kind words.    I did just about bin the damn thing, and you're quite correct - it WOULD have been alongside some....colourful language.  

At one point in the thread, it was suggested that I build another board, which I WAS about to do, had my error not been found.  In that case, the 2nd board probably would have worked fine, as for that assembly, I most likely would have used the correct regulator, and would then have decided conclusively, that the fault was something obscure on the 1st board - when in reality, it was not.

I do love a good electronic mystery, but it's a little embarrassing when you find that the fault.....was YOU(meaning me)!
