The HV meter on my supply does not work and the series resistor inside 
seems to be open.  No problem but there is another component across the 
resistor that I have never seen before and assume is a cap but don't 
know.. it also reads open.

I posted a pic at http://schmidling.com/meter.jpg for ID.

As an aside, the resistor is quaintly marked "Precision" but the value 
is "1/2 meg" which is hand written in like at NBS.  No decimal point, 
just 1/2 meg.  What is really bazaar is the accuracy is 2%, also hand 
written.  When was that ever precision?
