I must have got the alternate-flavour ones, somewhere between burnt
toast and toffee. Although 100% unwanted when coming out of a piece of
electronic equipment, it's not *that* bad.

I was remembering a lingering phenolic reek that took hours to dissipate
even with the windows open, but that was from the Schaffner power inlet
incident so the scorched potting gunk may well have contributed that
particular fragrance :-)
