The higher pressure could cause the regulator to stick also. High pressure 
can do funny things to pressure regulators. We fight it all the time at work, 
but then our regulators are fixed pressure regulators after they leave my 
calibration machines. For us, we calibrate them 5 at a time in about 30 
seconds, and that includes the time to move them in and out of the machine, 
and then run a series of test on them. The actual calibration takes about 5
