      I popped the end of the cable loose (from one of the frame stops),
      wrestled it off the cable where it was frozen (twisting helps lots)
      till the icy inner cable was exposed, and cracked/wiped it off. To
      prevent it, now, I try to keep water out of the lower end, which is
      where I think it got in.
