Generally I assume when you see leaking or bursting it could very well have
gone bad or it's on the way out...

Take a look at the attached photo.  Note how the rest of board's components
are clean, but a number of the 103K50 caps (10x10^3 pF) have a white fuzz.
I never saw this kind of leaking before.    Hope it's not too toxic.

I am going to test one to confirm and then remove them all and replace them
all.  BTW - this is an logic control board for a foot synthesizer that I am
