      I'm familiar with the slow-blow fuses (I made that discovery when I
      built my own tube amp when living in an apartment that still ran on
      fuses a few years ago - those can produce some pretty substantial
      inrush, especially when you're doing things wrong). I figured there
      must be some breakers along those lines; it might be worth looking
      into them.
