Most likely a feature to prevent potential damage due to condensation.

Weird, but very likely related to condensation, as jeff_u suggested.

I had a Lexicon LXP1 that used to stop working when it got too hot -as in: on stage during performances! I swapped it out for one in better condition which has been running fine.

Stoners frequently put their gear in the freezer by accident so this is some good information to have.

Indeed, for other people, in most cities on this planet ( - Canada apparently) if you leave your gear in the car for the night there would be only empty car to warm up.
