2005-09-19: Maintenance & Manufacturing Update: The pilot had selected prop de-ice immediately prior to incident and immediately switched it off. Smoke ceased and all other systems were working normally; but elected to land and investigate.

Since no other systems were affected and prop de-ice was not required for the intended flight, the system breaker was pulled & defect deferred.
