RE: Aerovox 610 capacitors, what type are they?

FWIW, the 610s I have test fine for both capacitance and leakage. Not sure exactly what's in them but a near exact duplicate by CD (same size/value/voltage) leaks oil when the case is breached. I've always assumed they were PIO caps designed for PS service where something better than electrolytic was desired.
