skewbe suggests either using a snorkel or fog-x....

I'd heard of rain-x before, but not fog-x. It's worth a shot. Also, at some point I pulled off the flexible duct from the blower motor housing to the hard ventwork. Even hooking that up to get air moving across the windshield should help.

2Ton: good idea about putting something on the pedal. Will give it a try.

The emergency disconnect is in place and works like a charm. That's the green light for playing around with a controller bypass circuit.

I was going to do some video editing tonight and put up another epic YouTube ForkenSwift presentation to celebrate its legal-ness, but Microsoft MovieMaker doesn't like the MPGs the borrowed vid camera is spitting out. Grr. They'll open & play in Media Player, but not in MMM. Apparently MS didn't want to pay MPEG 2 fees or some such. Something to work around tomorrow.
