Please explain that more clearly, especially the "opposite sense" part. Are 
you suggesting that the current somehow flows in the opposite direction 
through the supply in current limit?

Perhaps you meant to say the current may charge the output capacitor to a 
reverse voltage. That is where the diode could be helpful as I mentioned in 
my previous email.
