Besides overvoltage the fastest way to kill an electrolytic is getting RF 
into it.

Thats a given with a few brands that have insufficient plate choke 
bypassing. With .01 and .0047 HV disc caps readily available its cheap 
insurance. If there is a somewhat winding path from plate choke to caps I 
place another to ground right at the caps.
