Hi Martin:
Well there is already a line filter before the switch ... but, I don't know if the line filter has line to line X... and line to chassis Y... you could check.
The only reason for R5, C5, C6 ... that I can see is to protect the bridge rectifier.
Are you saying that Tektronix moded those out in an updated version of the schematic?
